Hold on right there!! The actual positive price movement is great, but caution is urged with lots of analysts calling this move a dead cat bounce.

Definition: Dead Cat Bounce  (Investopedia)
A dead cat bounce is a temporary, short-lived recovery of asset prices from a prolonged decline or a bear market that is followed by the continuation of the downtrend.

Caution is important as crypto markets are still recuperating from last week’s carnage. Proper “Due Diligence” is needed before expressing jubilation or calling “To the Moon” too quickly.

Bitcoin moved past the $30k mark in recent hours after finding some support at $28.5k, and this move upward prompted many altcoins to rally. Decentraland saw a 45% rally in recent hours.

MANA jumped nearly 45% in the past few hours as the short-term outlook shifted from strongly bearish toward bullish momentum. The market structure had flipped to bullish after the price formed a higher low at $0.7 and broke past the $0.8 lower high of the downtrend of the past few days.

Trend Reversal Will Be Slower Than The Epic Fall

Does this mean that a longer-term trend reversal is in sight? Not really, despite the buying pressure in recent hours. The OBV spiked upward alongside the price to reflect heavy buying volume on MANA’s surge from the $0.7 level to $1.03. The $0.95-$1 area could offer a buying opportunity on a retest for a scalp long, with take-profit targets at $1.2 and $1.3.

However, there is heavy resistance overhead, and risk has to be carefully managed.

With that happening, some investors are wondering if there’s a good future ahead for the crypto. Let’s tread lightly with the most recent MANA price predictions from experts!
