FTX price action
FTT is the native crypto asset of crypto derivatives trading platform FTX. FTT’s circulating supply is 138,569,138 and ranks 29th largest cryptocurrency by market cap, according to CoinMarketCap data.
FTX’s token (FTT) resuscitated a positive move from the $33.80 level on Jan. 8. The bulls pushed the price above the MA 50 barrier at $41.77, signaling a possible change in trend. The recent rally, which marked highs at $47.55 on Jan. 15, encouraged investors to become active again.
If bulls maintain the price above $45, FTX might begin its march toward the psychological resistance at $50. Contrary to this assumption, if the price turns down from the current level and breaks below the MA 50, this might pull the price down to $36.
FTX trades at $45.74 at press time.
