Can the price of The Graph rise and break above $1 in the next two days? Let’s take a brief look at GRT’s price from a technical perspective.
The Graph’s Price Perspective
Although GRT/USD has lost some of its early morning gains due to profit-taking limiting upward movement, buyers seem to have the upper hand.
On the 4-hour chart, the upward sloping moving average curves suggest a bullish continuation.
The Awesome oscillator confirms that momentum is with the bulls as the histogram continues to rise in the bullish zone. If price breaks above the $0.95 barrier, it could extend towards $1 and see the bullishness reach the level last seen in May.

The technical picture of GRT/USD suggests that a breakout could see the token price rise 33% to the 1.618 Fibonacci retracement level of the $0.97 to $0.44 swing. The target is at the $1.31 level, with possible gains also at $1.40 and $1.50.
If price fails to break through resistance around $0.95, immediate support is around the previous resistance area turned support near the $0.89 area. Below this anchor point, we have the 20 SMA ($0.82) and the 50 SMA ($0.75).

The daily chart also shows four consecutive higher candlestick closes, with the formation of a three outer candlestick formation to the upside. There was a hint of indecision in the market this week, but that quickly turned positive with higher moves amidst a golden cross formation.
Momentum is clearly with the bulls as the Awesome Oscillator shows. The bullish side can target the Fib 2.618 retracement level ($1.85) if it were to break above the $1.31 level and maintain the upward momentum over the next few days.
If there is has a breakout at current price levels, initial bearish targets are at the Fib 0.5 ($0.70) and Fib 0.236 ($0.57) levels.
