As another victim of the bearish crypto market, the smart contract blockchain, Avalanche (AVAX) has been grappling with bearish pressure for over a month. Over the past 30 days, AVAX’s price has plummeted by 21.52%. It hit an all-time low of over two years at $9.997 on August 28.

While similar levels were observed in June and December of 2022, followed by dual implosion of Terra’s UST and LUNA, and after FTX’s bankruptcy, yet this marks the first time that an overwhelming 99.5% of AVAX holders find themselves in a loss.

In contrast to this downtrend, there has been a notable 25.75% increase in trading volume, reaching $128 million in 24H.

Moreover, Throughout the year, the AVAX ecosystem has undergone several significant developments. These include a collaboration with Alibaba Cloud, a subset of the prominent Chinese e-commerce conglomerate Alibaba, aimed at deploying metaverses on the layer 1 blockchain.

It’s possible that Avalanche’s price could continue consolidating in a flag formation, awaiting a potential crossover above the 9-day and 21-day moving averages. However, a closer look suggests that the AVAX price might dip towards the $9.5 support level before any upward movement. A weaker $10 support level could trigger a price breakdown. It will lead bears to target subsequent supports at $8, $7, and $6.

Conversely, if a bullish momentum prevails, the price may rally towards resistance levels of $13, $14, and $15.
