Let’s examine some of the fundamental reasons behind these bullish moves and indicate the critical levels to watch out for.


Transferring money from one country to another with no hassle and without paying high commissions is a necessity in today’s world Celo (CELO) would like to facilitate this process. The project is gradually being adopted as it currently has $ 30 million in circulation.

After the success of cUSD, The platform plans to launch a new stablecoin that will be pegged to the euro over the next two months. Similar to the cUSD, the euro pegged stablecoin will use a basket of crypto assets to closely peg the price to the underlying asset.

The CELO / USD pair has started a new uptrend, making a series of higher highs and lows. This suggests a bullish sentiment and traders are buying the dips. The rising moving averages and RSI in the overbought zone show that the bulls have the upper hand.

The pair has no major resistance until it hits $ 4.30, but bears are unlikely to give up easily. They will try to stop the current upward move in the USD 3.60-3,922 zone. If successful, the pair could fall to the 20-day exponential moving average ($ 2,528) which is likely to be stepped in.

A strong rebound above the 20-day EMA will keep the uptrend intact and the bulls will try again to push the price down to $ 4.30. A breakout and close above the USD 4.30-4.50 resistance zone could begin the next leg of the uptrend.

This bullish position will be invalidated if the pair breaks below the 20-day EMA. If so, the pair could hit the 50-day SMA ($ 1.95).


The DeFi ecosystem remains strong even as major cryptocurrencies go through a major correction. This shows the users’ trust in the emerging ecosystem and the ability of projects to generate much higher returns compared to altcoins.

The log of Venus (XVS) is entirely part of Binance’s smart chain, so it hasn’t suffered the adverse effects of high gas commissions that negatively impacted DeFi projects earlier this month. This could have drawn some traders to Venus.

The XVS / USD pair could rise to $ 15 now and then to $ 20 later. However, the recent rally has pushed the RSI deep into overbought territory, increasing the risk of a correction or consolidation.

If the price deviates from its current level, it may find support at $ 10. A strong rally from this level suggests that previous resistance has turned into support and the bulls will try to resume the uptrend. Conversely, if the price falls below $ 10, the correction could lower the price and bring it down to $ 8.

However, the strong rally over the past few days has pushed the RSI deep into overbought territory, which could lead to a correction or consolidation.
