AMBCrypto’s previous outlook on UNI highlighted the selling pressure that the altcoin was under, with bulls needing to scale multiple price hurdles. While bulls were able to scale the $4.2 price hurdle, the bearish order block at $4.4 was a step too far.

This led to an 8% drop over five days, with UNI trading at $4 as of the time of writing.

The On Balance Volume (OBV) declined by over $5 million within the period under consideration. This loss of trading volume stalled the bullish rally, which allowed sellers back into the market at the resistance level.

With price trading at a mid-point between the $4.4 resistance and $3.8 support, a retest of the $3.8 support looked more likely in the short term.

This was further supported by the Relative Strength Index (RSI) dropping below the neutral 50 – a sign of weakening buying pressure and an increase in selling pressure.

Thus, both UNI’s price action and on-chart indicators revealed the short-term bearish bias in the market.

Another factor that could be affecting UNI is the recent imposition of an interface fee of 0.15% on Uniswap with traders favoring a sell-off rather than an accumulation, based on AMBCrypto‘s findings.

Market speculators in the futures market were bearish in the short term. According to Coinglass, the exchange long/short ratio showed that shorts had a 51.38% share of the open contracts on UNI.

This hinted at a further price dip in the short term, with the $3.8 support becoming the best possible price level for another bullish rebound.
