NEAR coin price creates a new all-time high level at $20 but falls due to increased profit booking. Will the bulls regain trend control to reach $23? NEAR Protocol is a layer-1 blockchain that was created as a cloud computing platform run by community members. It removes certain limitations that have plagued other blockchains such as slow transaction speed and interoperability. It provides the perfect environment for DApps and provides an easy-to-use and developer-friendly platform. For example, NEAR uses human-readable account names, as opposed to the cryptocurrency-based wallet addresses used by Ethereum. NEAR is also able to provide innovative solutions to scaling issues and also has its own mechanism for consensus called "Doomslug." Let us move ahead to read about Near Protocol technical analysis.

Past Performance of NEAR

The NEAR coin price faces rejection near the all-time high level of $20.38, predicted in our previous article. The coin price shows a growth of 60% in the last five days resulting in multiple bullish engulfing candlesticks. The price jump results in the breakout of multiple resistance levels including $18. Therefore, the current retracement acts as the retest of the $18 breakout. TradingView Chart NEAR/USD Daily Chart

NEAR Technical Analysis

The NEAR coin price forms a bearish candle with a minuscule wick, indicating a solid selling pressure in action. However, the free fall in the coin price can find support at $18 as a previous candle shows lower price rejection from the horizontal level. Crucial EMAs (50, 100, and 200) rise in an ascending alignment reflecting a solid bull run in action. Therefore, retracements to 20-day EMA can provide buy-the-dip opportunities. The RSI indicator at 65% shows a small reversal in the slope as it struggles to rise into the overbought zone. Nonetheless, the slope and the 14-day SMA sustain above the center mark in the daily chart. The MACD indicator shows a gradual rise in the MACD and signal lines in the positive segment in the daily chart. Therefore, the indicator remains bullish for the NEAR coin.  Therefore, the technical analysis indicates a solid bull run with a short correction in action to retest the bullish breakout. Furthermore, the indicators maintain a buy signal for the coin.

Upcoming Trend

The creation of an all-time new high level at $20 marks a significant bullish milestone for the NEAR coin. That is why a fall due to profit booking is seen. However, the retest of $18 will drive the prices higher to the next pivot level. That is why holders can see the price break above $20 shortly. The price action suggests support levels at $18 and $16 can halt the profit booking induced falling price. And, a bullish reversal can find selling pressure at $20 and $23. At press time, the sentiments chart gives a "BUY" signal for the Near Protocol token.
