4. Technical Analysis on Avalanche
4.1. Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP)
VWAP is a technical indicator used by a trader to gauge the overall trend of an asset price movement. VWAP line (orange line) represents the volume-weighted average price (average price here is defined as the average of high, low and close prices) while close price line (blue line) represents the price when AVAX is closed at the end of every single day.
Whenever blue line (close price) is above orange line (VWAP), it indicates that the asset is gaining momentum and being traded higher than its average price level. This would represent a 'buy' opportunity for short-term momentum trader whom task is to trade following the trend while a longer term mean-revision trader might take it as a 'sell' opportunity, anticipating that the price of AVAX (blue line) to fall to its average level (orange line).
Whenever blue line (close price) is below orange line (VWAP), it indicates that the asset is losing momentum and being traded lower than its average price level. This would represent a 'sell' opportunity for short-term momentum trader whom task is to trade following the trend while a longer term mean-revision trader might take it as a 'buy' opportunity, anticipating that the price of AVAX (blue line) to rise to its average level (orange line).
As of 09 Jan 2022, VWAP is suggesting that AVAX is losing significant momentum and is now trading below its volume-weighted average.
4.2. Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD)
MACD is often used by trader as a momentum indicator. There are 2 lines that form the above charts, namely MACD (12, 26) lines and Signal(9) line, while the histogram is calculated by subtracting Signal (9) from MACD (12,26). Histogram would fall to the negative territory whenever MACD (12, 26) is trending at a lower level than Signal (9) and rise to the positive territory whenever MACD (12,26) is trending at a higher level than Signal (9).
MACD (12, 26) is computed by subtracting the 26-day exponential moving average (EMA) of AVAX closing price from its 12-day EMA.
Signal (9) on the other hand is calculated as the 9-day EMA of MACD (12,26).
As MACD (12, 26) goes higher away from Signal (9), it signifies that AVAX is gaining momentum and whenever it goes trends at a lower level than Signal (9),it signifies that AVAX is losing momentum.
As of 09 Jan 2022, MACD is suggesting that AVAX is losing significant momentum.
4.3. Bollinger Band
Bollinger band is often being used by mean-reversion trader as a gauge to assess how undervalued or overvalued an asset is. Its chart made up of 4 lines, namely:
- SMA (20) (blue line), which is the 20-day simple moving average price of AVAX
- Upper Band (orange line), which is computed by adding 2 standard deviations of AVAX on SMA (20)
- Lower Band (red line) , which is computed by subtracting 2 standard deviations of AVAX from SMA (20)
- Close (green line), which is the daily closing price of AVAX
Whenever close line (green) touches the lower band (red), it indicates that AVAX is corrected too much and is being traded at an undervalued level, representing a 'buy' opportunity. On the other hand, whenever close line (green) touches the upper band (orange), it indicates that AVAX is gaining too much momentum and is being traded at an overvalued level, thus indicating a 'sell' opportunity.
As of 09 Jan 2022, Bollinger Band is suggesting that AVAX has been severely oversold to an undervalued zone.
4.4. Relative Strength Index (RSI)
Just like Bollinger Band, Relative Strength Index is often being used by mean-reversion trader as a gauge to assess how undervalued or overvalued an asset is. There are 2 psychological levels, i.e. 30 and 70 in RSI. Whenever the RSI reaches 30, it indicates that AVAX is corrected too much and is being traded at an undervalued level, representing a 'buy' opportunity. On the other hand, whenever RSI reaches 70, it indicates that AVAX is gaining too much momentum and is being traded at an overvalued level, thus indicating a 'sell' opportunity.
As of 09 Jan 2022, RSI is suggesting that AVAX is neither oversold nor overbought.
4.5. Volume and Price Analysis
Based on the price and volume trend of AVAX in the past 2 weeks as demonstrated in the chart above, the recent sell-off of AVAX was not accompanied by a huge volume as compared to the sell-off on 22 Nov 2021, where it's obvious that the sell-off on 22 Nov 2021 was accompanied by a huge volume. In addition, AVAX recovered from near USD 80 bottom to USD 120 top before the sell-off last few days, suggesting that AVAX is likely in a consolidation zone. However, should BTC continue to dip, there is a fair chance that AVAX would follow suit as well.
Based on the technical analysis presented above, quantdoge is bullish on AVAX, but I could be wrong, hence please make your careful due diligence before making any financial decision.
5. Avalanche Risk Profile
Based on the 100-day 95% historical Value-at-Risk (VaR) profile of Avalanche defined above, AVAX seems to trade at a greater risk level on 09 Jan 2022 as compared to 10 days before on 30 Dec 2021, with its biggest pullback being seen at -16.66% on a single day during the last 100 days. However, I could be wrong, hence please make your careful due diligence before making any financial decision.
6. Price Simulation for Avalanche
