• Jito’s cup and handle setup forecasts a massive breakout rally.
  • JTO could trigger a 55% move to $6.00 if the $3.86 support level holds.
  • A decisive breakdown of the $3.86 barrier will invalidate the bullish thesis.

Jito (JTO) price catalyzed a breakout rally on March 31 as it completed a bullish consolidation pattern. Since then, JTO has triggered an explosive move but failed to sustain it due to the market conditions. Now, the Solana-based token ponders on its second attempt at an uptrend.

Jito price at a make-or-break point

Jito's price action between December 9, 2023, and March 16, 2024, set up two rounded bottom patterns. The first structure, which is roughly 55% deep, is the cup, and the second is a handle—hence the namesake. The swing highs of these structures can be connected using a trend line to form a horizontal resistance level. 

From a technical standpoint, a breakout above this resistance level at $3.86 confirms a breakout from the cup and handle pattern. This technical formation forecasts a 55% rally obtained by measuring the depth of the cup and adding it to the breakout point at $3.86, which reveals a target of $6.

After its initial thrust above the $3.86 hurdle, Jito price ascended 38% and set up a local top at $5.32. However, due to Bitcoin’s retracement, altcoins suffered a pullback. As a result, Jito price retested the $3.86 support level and currently exchanges hands at $4.08, with the anticipation of a higher move.

The Relative Strength Index and Awesome Oscillator are both close to their respective mean levels of 50 and 0, respectively, which suggests that a reset could lead to a bounce. Hence, JTO is at a good point to trigger a bounce. All it needs is the go sign from the big crypto or renewed enthusiasm.

On the other hand, if Jito price breaches the $3.86 support level on the daily chart and flips it into a resistance level, it would invalidate the bullish thesis. This move would produce a lower low and potentially kickstart a 27% correction to $2.85.
