• THORChain price flipped a four-hour resistance level at $4.68 into a support floor.
  • Increasingly bullish momentum indicators support the idea of a breakout rally to $5.22.
  • A lower low below $4.45 will invalidate the bullish thesis for RUNE.

THORChain (RUNE) price has flipped a hurdle into a support floor and hints at an upcoming rally. RUNE holders could expect the newly flipped foothold to trigger a bounce to subsequent key hurdles.

THORChain price ready to move higher 

THORChain price has been on a downtrend for nearly seven weeks and has shed 41% so far. The recent move, however, seems to have flipped the $4.68 hurdle into a support floor, indicating a key shift in market structure favoring bulls. 

Moreover, this flip of the hurdle into a support floor comes with the Relative Strength Index (RSI) crossing above the 50 mean level, adding credence to the uptick in bullish momentum. Awesome Oscillator has also moved above its 0 mean level, further denoting a sustained increase in bullish momentum. 

Going forward, investors can expect THORChain price to kickstart a 10% move to the daily resistance level of $5.22. In its ascent to the target, RUNE holders can book partial profits at $4.88 hurdle.

While the bullish outlook for THORChain price is logical and backed by supporting indicators, investors need to note that the volatility after Bitcoin spot ETF approval has reduced on a relative basis. Therefore, the rally might be extremely slow or in some cases, it could fail to propel higher.

In such a case, if there is a spike in selling pressure that pushes THORChain price to produce a lower low below $4.45, it will invalidate the bullish thesis. In such a case, RUNE could crash 4% and tag the January 8 swing low at $4.27.
