Terra price prepares for a minor downswing

This 17% downswing is where buyers are likely to step in and try to cauterize the wound. If bulls fail to make a comeback, there is a high chance interested investors are still biding their time, waiting for further discounts before jumping in.

Terra price could find massive support and potential reversal around a buy zone, ranging from $43.61 to $48.44.
