ImmutableX price rallies 16% while Bitcoin, Ethereum and Ripple consolidate



  • ImmutableX price has shot up in the last two hours, clocking in 15% gains for the day.
  • This spike in market value comes as Bitcoin continues to oscillate between the $29,000 and $30,000 levels.
  • In roughly two weeks, IMX tokens worth $15 million will be unlocked, increasing sell-side pressure.

ImmutableX (IMX) price saw a massive surge in buying pressure after a huge uptick in interest from traders. This outlook comes as Bitcoin price continues to trade sideways, hugging the $30,000 psychological level. Considering the way altcoins are pumping and dumping, this uptick could also be short-lived, with the possibility that these gains are undone quickly. 

ImmutableX price explodes after rally in open interest

ImmutableX (IMX) price rallied 16% in less than three hours on Friday, increasing from $0.722 to $0.842. This uptick can be attributed to the massive 248% upswing in Open Interest. The number of contracts saw an increase to $21 million. 

As Bitcoin consolidates, Ethereum and Ripple follow suit. But traders are likely getting bored with the ongoing rangebound movement, which has established a highly volatile environment for altcoins.

Most double-digit gains in altcoins are often undone quickly. IMX could also experience the same.

Bitcoin price consolidates

Bitcoin price shows no signs of providing directional bias as it trades between the $29,000 and $30,000 levels. The short-term outlook predicts BTC could drop down to key support levels at $28,138, $27,330, and $26,767. 

While these support floors are critical, Bitcoin price needs to stay above the $24,777 support level. A breakdown below this level would create a lower low and invalidate the bullish thesis. Such a development could see BTC drop down to $24,267 and $21,313.
