Axie Infinity (AXS) Could Have Found a Short-term Bottom on the 1 Day Chart.
Concerning price action, the daily AXS/USDT chart below hints at a potential short-term bottom for the digital asset at the recent low of $11.85 set last week as Bitcoin fell to a local low of $17,600.
Also, from the chart, it can be observed that AXS is attempting to recapture the 50-day (white) moving average as support. The daily trade volume is also green and confirmed by the MACD’s histograms.
Additionally, the daily RSI and MFI hint at renewed buying interest that could see AXS retest $20 or even push high enough towards $25 in the following days.
However, as with all altcoins, the fate of Axie Infinity (AXS) is very much tied to that of Bitcoin. Consequently, a loss of the $20k support by Bitcoin could lead to further losses for AXS, including dipping below the $10 support level.
