[2] 🔔 All is not yet lost for Filecoin (FIL)?

The Alikze analysis suggests that the FIL is showing a pattern where the coin is moving upwards. This pattern is observed in both the daily (D1) and weekly (W1) timeframes, indicating a sustained upward movement.

The analysis refers to a previous examination of smaller upward movements within a larger upward trend. The current analysis places the cryptocurrency’s long-term trend within the third major upward movement or wave C. Despite potential minor corrections along the way, a FIL target of $12.5 could be reached.

The token has already surpassed a resistance level of $6.25 and is now within the previous resistance-turned-support zone. This suggests a possibility to enter the target range between $10.28 and $12.5.

  • Support levels at $6.25 and $7.03. 
  • Target levels: $10.28, $12.5, $16.886 – $19.530.

*Any technical analysis, in the long run, cannot accurately predict the movement because now is a very tough market and the news can swing currencies in all directions.
