Biggest Movers: ATOM Hits 4-Month High, NEAR up 10% on Thursday

Cosmos (ATOM)

Cosmos (ATOM) raced to a four-month high this afternoon, as prices of the token broke out of a key price point.

Following a low of $11.98 on Wednesday, ATOM/USD rose by nearly $2.00 in today’s session, hitting a high of $13.92 in the process.

Thursday’s rally comes as the token raced past its ceiling of $13.35, en route to its highest level since May 11.

ATOM/USD – Daily Chart

Looking at the chart, ATOM has been in an ascending triangle since hitting a low of $5.62 in mid-June.

Bulls of the token now look as if they could be targeting the $15.00 mark, which would see the token rise by almost $10.00 in just under two months.

In order to achieve this milestone, the token will need to overcome a hurdle on its relative strength index (RSI), which will come in the form of a ceiling at 63.30.

Near Protocol (NEAR)

Another notable gainer on Thursday was near protocol (NEAR), which rallied to a multi-week high earlier in the day.

NEAR/USD was able to reach a peak of $4.63 today, as prices rose for a second consecutive session.

Unlike cosmos, which moved past its own price ceiling, near protocol was unable to break out of its resistance, after almost colliding with the $4.65 level.

As of writing, prices are at $4.60, as bulls still attempt to fully break out of this aforementioned hurdle.

For this to occur, we may need to see the 10-day (red) and 25-day (blue) moving averages cross, which could come soon, as they increase in proximity.

Should this occur, there will be a strong chance of near protocol moving closer to $5.00.
