• AXS price holds the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level as the correction continues after a 647.49% gain in July.
  • Volume profile through the current correction shows no hints of distribution, suggesting a bullish resolution.
  • Axie Infinity triggered a double bottom pattern on the six-hour chart and recaptured the support of the 50 six-hour simple moving average (SMA).

AXS price fell 13.91% last week after climbing 135.49% the previous week, demonstrating limited interest in the Axie Infinity investor ranks to capture profits. The resulting corrective process may have formed a low this week, with Axie Infinity triggering a double bottom pattern on the six-hour chart. Regardless of today’s weakness, the digital token is on the cusp of a new leg higher if it can disarm the magnet effect of the 461.8% extension of the cup base at $44.52 and the resistance of the measured move price target of $51.34.

AXS price encounters some turbulence, but investors show a firm grip 

AXS price recorded one of the most dominant performances from the end of June to the end of July, driving the altcoin to a 1,800% gain and a test of the 461.8% extension of the April-May correction at $44.52 and the measured move target of the cup base formed from April to July at $51.34. After stalling around the measured move target, Axie Infinity printed several doji candlesticks and forged a correction, reflecting the indecision that commonly follows a tremendous gain.

When Axis Infinity tested the 261.8% extension of the April-May correction at $26.40, the cryptocurrency immediately fell into a correction that took the form of a flag pattern. Thus, pullbacks are inevitable when significant AXS price levels are probed.

However, the corrective process may be completed as AXS price logged a breakout from a double bottom on the six-hour chart on August 3 and recaptured the essential intra-day support provided by the 50 six-hour SMA at $42.16.

The AXS price indecision over the last 13 sessions following the test of the 461.8% extension has held the 38.2% retracement of the advance from the June 22 low at $35.94, which is highlighted by a sharp contraction in volume, signifying no distribution or eagerness to capture profits.

With the double bottom already activated on the six-hour chart, AXS price needs to log a daily close above the July 27 close of $46.88 for Axie Infinity to actively target new rally highs, including a touch of the topside trend line going back to the November 2020 high at $128.27, delivering a 173.63% return from the July 27 close.

The bullish narrative will be voided with a daily close below the 38.2% retracement at $32.94. It may project a deeper correction or mark a definitive top for AXS price.

AXS price has not been overwhelmed by a rush for the exits, despite the historic gains. Axie Infinity has preferred a slow drift lower, evacuating the weak holders, releasing the price compression, allowing the shorter duration moving averages to catch up and formalizing the base for a resumption of the advance.

With AXS price close to the entry price of $46.88, Axie Infinity investors need to prepare for a quick thrust higher. Whether the altcoin reaches the topside trend line is unknown, but AXS price can manufacture the momentum to come close based on historical precedent.

Here, FXStreet's analysts evaluate where AXS could be heading next as it seems bound to advance further.
