Ascending Support Line
The price made a low of $53.60 on Mar 26. A gradual upward move followed. Several market cycles have been completed since and after each one the lows have been higher than the preceding ones.
Tracing these lows gives us an ascending support line:
There is no visible resistance line. However, there is a possible bearish pattern forming. Let’s learn more.
The bearish pattern that appears to be developing is referred to as a “double top.”
A double top is a bearish technical reversal pattern that forms after an asset reaches a high price two consecutive times with a moderate decline between the two highs.
On Apr 3, the price reached a high of $78.45. It reached a similar high of $77.25 on Apr 8.
The arrows in that chart below locate these two points:
In addition, there was a moderate decline between the two highs. Thus, the price of Zcash appears to exhibit the characteristics of a double top pattern.
Because this is a bearish pattern, A drop towards the support line appears likely.
In order to assess whether price drops are indeed likely, we need to take a look at some technical indicators.
We begin by incorporating RSI into our analysis.
About RSI: The relative strength index (RSI) is an indicator which calculates the size of the changes in price in order to determine oversold or overbought conditions in the market.
RSI is shown alongside price below. The double top pattern and support line are also traced:
On Apr 3 the price made a high of $78.45. It reached a similar level on Apr 8.
Similarly, the RSI made its first high during the same interval. However, it has proceeded to generate lower values.
This is known as bearish divergence and often precedes price decreases.
Using this indicator combined with the double top pattern, we believe that price drops are likely in the near future.
To determine possible future price levels, we incorporate resistance and support areas into the analysis.
Resistance and support areas are created when the price reaches the same level several times. They can provide likely reversal areas in case a breakout/breakdown occurs.
These areas are traced in the graph below:
The first resistance area is found near $77. If the price reaches this level, it could create a triple top pattern. Similar to the double top pattern, this would represent a bearish reversal. Prices would likely drop soon after reaching this level.
The closest support area is provided by the ascending support line, which is currently at $67. Afterwards, the closest support area is found near $59. Price may drop toward these areas in the near future.

Based on this analysis, the price will likely drop towards the ascending support line. This means a likely short-term decrease in price.
