In recent days, the Avalanche has seen significant losses, dropping nearly 20%. On a weekly time frame, AVAX has lost 10% of its market value. Although the daily timeframe indicates that AVAX has made a slight upward move on its chart, appreciating 1.6%, the technical outlook for Avalanche remains bearish.
Buyers have been cautious of price moves while sellers have dominated the market, causing both demand and accumulation to decline on the daily chart. For the Avalanche price to experience some relief, it needs to break above the $18 mark.
However, the $17 price level has acted as a supply zone for the altcoin. If the bulls cannot defend the current price of the altcoin, the bears can take full control of the asset price.
Like other prominent altcoins, the major market drivers have been struggling to break through their crucial resistance levels. The decrease in AVAX’s market capitalization indicates a decrease in buying pressure in the market.
