Curve DAO Token (CRV) is attempting to find support after a short-term retracement that began on July 21. The direction of the long-term trend is still unclear.

CRV has been falling underneath a descending resistance line since reaching an all-time high price of $6.80 in Jan. So far, the downward movement has led to a low of $0.53 in June. 

However, the price has been moving upwards since and has managed to break out from the aforementioned descending resistance line. 

Currently, it is facing crucial resistance at $1.40 (red icon), created by a horizontal support area and a long-term ascending support line from which it previously broke down (red icon). 

A potential breakout above this level would be a decisive sign that a bullish reversal is in place. 

Additionally, this would likely cause the weekly RSI to move above 50, in what would also be considered a sign of a bullish trend.

Ongoing increase

The daily chart shows that CRV has been increasing since June 18. During this upward movement, it managed to reclaim the $1.15 area and validate it as support afterward. Additionally, the daily RSI has moved above 50.

On the other hand, the price seems to be following a shorter-term descending resistance line, which has been in place since the beginning of Feb. The line coincides with the previously outlined confluence of resistance levels at $1.40. 

In order for the trend to be considered bullish, the price has to break out above this level.

The most likely wave count suggests that CRV has completed wave one (black) of a longer-term five-wave upward movement, or potentially an upward A-B-C structure. The sub-wave count is given in yellow, and suggests that the price is in wave A of an A-B-C corrective structure. 

If so, a short-term bounce is expected, before the price decrease once more towards the 0.618 Fib retracement support level. 

Afterward, the upward movement could continue.
