Crypto analyst Ali Martinez has shared a COMP chart that shows that the popular DeFi token is breaking out and has good odds of soaring higher if it can find enough support from buyers.

"Compound appears to be breaking out"

Martinez tweeted that COMP, at the moment, is going through the descending triangle pattern of a symmetrical triangle that formed on the four-hour COMP/TetherUS Perpetual Futures chart on Binance.

The trader believes that if the wave of buying pressure surges, it can push the token's price up by about 24%, in the direction of the $67 level. The main condition here is that COMP has to hold the $50 support.

“A spike in buying pressure could COMP up 24% towards $67 as long as the $50 support holds.”

Over the past 24 hours, the aforementioned token has jumped by roughly 9% overall, now exchanging hands at the $55.58 level. It is currently trading about 94% below its all-time high of $911 reached on May 12, 2021, after Bitcoin hit a historic peak, too.

COMP is a governance token utilized on decentralized ledger Compound. It is ranked 103rd on the CoinMarketCap scale of tokens with a market capitalization of $403,469,637 (it has grown by 5.86% in the past 24 hours). The token's trading volume has also jumped up, by 21.93%, reaching $42,212,246.
