Uniswap’s negative momentum is growing stronger as the above 12-hour chart indicates. The UNI/USD pair nosedived to hit a brief low of $2.47 before rebounding. Fortunately, the bounce-back was pretty solid, and Uniswap surged by more than 45 percent to hit $.65 on October 10. Notably, for the first time, the MACD indicator signalled bullishness. 

On October 12, the UNI/USD pair launched an attempt against the $3.66 support level and unfortunately the resistance was immense. The governance token got rejected and slumped by over 15 percent to the current price of $2.9780. The MACD indicator has started to turn bearish signalling a price drop. Moreover, the trading volume is increasing while UNI value is dropping, which is a bearish signal.

Uniswap price action is currently trading in a hostile area, and the bears are still pushing. As such, the selling pressure was not entirely quelled, and the governance token is hunting for firm support. The relative strength index has signalled a negative deviation indicating that the bearish rally might extend.

Uniswap price prediction

The UNI/USD pair has successfully managed to breach the support zone near $3.0, and the bearish market will likely extend towards the fundamental support zone near $2.50 and $2.60. On the other hand, the first resistance point is near the 100 and 50 SMA and the critical price resistance at $3.60. 

The latest bounce back by the Uniswap price action came as a great comfort to investors after a very sharp price decline. If the breakdown continues, UNI could see some significant losses. Furthermore, the number of new addresses joining the platform is diminishing, which is worrying. On September 26, the number of new Uniswap addresses per day was over 4,300, but they have significantly declined to a bottom of 1,400 and are still dropping. This evidently signals that investors are detached with UNI at the moment. The UNI/USD pair could be destined for a drop towards $2.46 if the current bear market prevails.
