The main support is now forming near the USD 10.00 level (the most recent breakout zone). The 50% fib retracement level of the uptrend from the low of $ 7.00 to the high of $ 12.98 is also close to the $ 10.00 level. Further losses could push the price towards the 100 (4 hour) simple moving average at $ 7.50.
If UNI price stays stable above $ 11.50 and $ 11.00, it could continue to rise. Initial resistance to the upside is near the $ 13.00 level.
A successful break above the USD 13.00 resistance zone could potentially pave the way for near-term pressure on the USD 14.50 and USD 15.00 resistance levels. The next big target for the bulls could be $ 20.00.
