Cryptocurrencies started to move in a bullish direction

After crossing the moving average lines, cryptocurrencies started to move in a bullish direction.

The problem with cryptocurrencies is that altcoins have entered overbought market segments. Bullish momentum is drying up in the overbought region. Selling pressure has returned as sellers emerge in the overbought region of the market. Let us take a look at each of these cryptocurrencies below.

Gala

The price of Gala (GALA) has risen above the $0.015 support level, indicating an uptrend. The altcoin was previously in a downtrend, falling from a high of $0.84 to a low of $0.015. GALA rose above the support level of $0.015 today, reaching a high of $0.051. As GALA approached the overbought area of the market, the positive momentum stalled. GALA has fallen back below the resistance level of $0.045 since January 9. A candlestick retracing the January 9 uptrend tested the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement line. According to the retracement, GALA will rise to the level of 1.618 Fibonacci extension or $0.071. With a level of 79 on the Relative Strength Index for the 14 period, the altcoin is still in the overbought zone. The best performing cryptocurrency has the characteristics listed below.

The altcoin reversed course and reached its breakout level, which was $0.023. If the price rises back above the $0.023 breakout level or the moving average lines, the current uptrend could continue.
