Is a price pump inevitable?
Terra Classic’s recent price action was pretty sluggish, as it failed to register any massive gains. At press time, LUNC was trading at $0.0001685 with a market capitalization of over $1 billion.
LUNC’s on-chain metrics provided a better understanding of what might lie ahead. Its development activity increased substantially over the past week, which was a positive signal.
Moreover, the crypto community’s faith in LUNC seemed to have increased as the token’s positive sentiment went up lately. LunarCrush’s data revealed that LUNC remained popular in the crypto industry, as its social engagement spiked quite a few times in the last seven days.
Interestingly, the token also made it to the list of the most traded Cosmos IBC tokens on 13 December.
But investors might have to wait longer
Though the metrics were supportive of a price surge, the market indicators told a different story. For instance, the Exponential Moving Average (EMA) Ribbon revealed that the bears had the upper hand in the market.
The 20-day EMA was resting below the 55-day EMA. In fact, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) was also hovering below the neutral mark, which was yet another bearish signal.
Nonetheless, the MACD’s reading displayed that the bulls were slightly ahead of the bears. On the same note, LUNC’s Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) registered a slight uptick, which gave hope to the investors.
