The range-low of $4.5 was a sticky resistance during the June recovery. As such, it could become bulls’ headache, especially if Bitcoin [BTC] drops below $26k. If so, the price rejection at $4.5 could push UNI lower towards the June low of $3.64. 

Such a downward spiral could give late sellers a short opportunity with an entry position at $4.5. The take-profit levels will be $4.2 for conservative and $.3.94 for aggressive players. But the latter was a riskier undertaking. 

Conversely, a convincing reclaim of the range-lows ($4.5) and a move above $4.67 will invalidate the short set-up. 

Meanwhile, the Relative Strength Index and the Chaikin Money Flow had negative readings, demonstrating muted buying pressure and weak capital inflows.

However, the weighted funding rates showed impressive signs of recovery, which points to improving sentiment. However, a move and subsequent close above $4.5 could confirm a bullish bias. 

So, tracking BTC movement is crucial for better-optimized set-up and risk management.
