However, the upcoming FOMC meeting on 2-3 May could expose Bitcoin [BTC] to fluctuations before steadying afterward. Similarly, AVAX will follow suit, and macro traders can track these key levels.

The bullish order block (cyan) of $16.44 has been a key support in April and late March. At press time, price action was below the short (50-EMA) and long (200-EMA) trends, reiterating sellers’ leverage.

However, AVAX’s pullback retested the support level alongside lower wicks which could suggest a potential uptrend. A confirmed uptrend continuation above $18.0 could set the AVAX/USDT pair to rally to the supply zone of $21- $22. 

If that’s the case, an entry at $18 for a long position targeting $21 can offer a good risk ratio. However, obstacles lay at the dynamic 200-EMA ($18.87) and Fair Value Gap (FVG) zone of $19.5 – $20.2 (white). These obstacles could offer resistance to the likely upswing. 

On the contrary, AVAX’s structure will weaken further if the $16.4 support cracks. A close below it could tip sellers to sink AVAX to $15.4 or March swing low of $14. 

Meanwhile, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) has been fluctuating in the low range – highlighting buying and selling pressure was equal in the past few days, but sellers had a slight advantage. Similarly, the On-Balance Volume (OBV) was flat, showing demand stagnated in the same period.
