- Short-sellers are likely to get squeezed on a move above the Cloud.
- Downside risks remain despite new bullish momentum.

Uniswap price will spike to $45 if it can break near-term resistance
Uniswap price has two cluster of resistances it must break before converting into a full-blown bull market. The first resistance cluster is Kijun-Sen and Senkou Span B, between $23.00 and $23.50. This is the most challenging resistance cluster to cross due to Senkou Span B. Senkou Span B represents the most substantial support/resistance level within the Ichimoku system.
Closing above Senkou Span B would be a powerful signal to market participants that sentiment quickly shifts to the buy-side. Additionally, it will likely mean an easier time for Uniswap price to crack above the second resistance cluster. The second resistance cluster is the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement and top of the Cloud (Senkou Span A) between $25.00 and $25.60. Therefore, Uniswap price needs to close at or above $26.25 to fulfill all Ideal Bullish Ichimoku Breakout requirements. If the break-out is confirmed, Uniswap should have a relatively easy time pushing higher towards $45.
