Optimism (OP) Price Hits New ATH, How High Can It Rise?

The price of Optimism (OP) has broken above a significant resistance zone and reached a new all-time high (ATH) this week.

However, trading within a long-term pattern may limit its upward momentum in the short term.

Long-Term Pattern

The price of Optimism (OP) has been trading within a broadening wedge since June 2022. The price has tested both the support and resistance of the wedge several times, confirming the validity of the pattern.

During the week of October 16 to 22, 2023, the OP price bounced up from the support line of the pattern (yellow arrow). Initially, the upward movement was gradual but accelerated last week. This helped OP break above the $3.1 resistance zone with a large bullish candle, reaching a new all-time high of $4.2 this week.

Currently, OP is in the process of confirming the $3.1 zone as support (green arrow). If successful, it may continue to rise towards the next resistance zone at $4.7, formed by the Fib retracement of 1.618 of the recent decline and the wedge’s resistance.

The RSI indicator has entered the overbought zone and is sloping upward, indicating that the uptrend may continue.

Coincidentally, the peak of the previous uptrend (green ellipse) was created at the Fib retracement level of 1.618 of the previous decline.

Therefore, the $4.7 level may provide formidable resistance when approached.

However, breaking above the $4.7 level could help OP quickly rise to the next resistance at $7.1 (Fib 2.618).
