According to the 4-hour trading cycle depicted below, as the price rose more than 40% from the bottom, the long market called a truce. Thus, the trend has entered a consolidation phase. From the perspective of SMAs, a long trend was displayed, indicating that the short-, medium-, and long-term trends are still in the hands of the long. However, the trend of the MA7 support has moved sideways, not as steep as before, and concerns remain regarding excessive price surge in the short term.
