News from Uniswap [UNI] expansion into the AVAX network helped explain the strong rally Avalanche saw last week. After the breakout past the $14.5 zone and subsequent retest, AVAX was likely to continue to climb higher.
The bullish structure and trend allowed a move to $16 and above
The OBV showed huge buying volume in the Avalanche market over the past few days which catapulted the price above the $14.5 resistance zone. This area, highlighted by the red box, was a bearish order block on the 1-day timeframe from June 6.
It was previously tested as resistance on July 9, and AVAX received a brief rejection to fall to $12.85 before rallying again. Based on this move, a series of Fibonacci retracement levels were plotted. It showed that the 50% and 61.8% retracement levels were $14.41 and $14.04, respectively.
Hence, these are the two levels traders can look to bid on AVAX, targeting a move to the local highs at $16 and a 23.6% extension at $16.71. Invalidating this idea would be a drop below the 78.6% retracement level at $13.52.
The RSI and moving averages showed bullish momentum. The H4 market structure was also bullish. But a drop below the higher low at $14.04 would shift the trend to the bearish side.
The Open Interest started to decrease after the near-term AVAX rejection of $15
The 1-hour chart showed that on July 15, OI followed a strong upward trajectory along with prices. However, buyers’ conviction started to weaken as the price started to fall after moving towards $15.35.

This should not deter swing traders as it was the weekend. And volume was low and the market may not be ready for a breakout. The declining CVD over the past two days has also been a concern for short-term bulls. It was at odds with the OBV, which saw only a minor pullback and showed bullish dominance overall.
