Increasing sell pressure on Maker

Lookonchain’s 21 July tweet revealed that a wallet named a16z deposited MKR to Coinbase. The selling sentiment was also proven by CrypotoQuant’s data, as MKR’s exchange reserve was increasing at press time.

Additionally, its net deposit on exchanges was also higher than the last seven days. The increase in selling pressure could have played a major role in turning the token’s price bearish.

As per CoinMarketCap, Maker’s price declined by more than 6% over the last day. At press time, it was trading at $1,088.57 with a market cap of over $1 billion.

Surprisingly, despite the massive hike in MKR’s price last week, its supply held by top addresses registered a decline. Nonetheless, its total number of holders rose slightly.

Thanks to the price uptick, sentiment around MKR also turned positive, as evident from the rise in its weighted sentiment. Its social dominance also spiked quite a few times last week, reflecting its popularity.

Another positive metric was its MVRV Ratio, which has risen sharply in the last seven days.

Bears take over the market

Not only did CryptoQuant’s data reveal that MKR was under selling pressure, but it also pointed out that Maker’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) was in an overbought zone. This is a bearish signal, increasing the chances of a continued price downtrend.

A look at its daily chart also gave a similar bearish notion. MKR’s Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) registered a downtick. Its Bollinger Bands revealed that after a bull rally, MKR’s price entered a slightly less volatile zone.

Nonetheless, the 20-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) was still above the 55-day EMA, which was bullish. Another bullish indicator was the Money Flow Index (MFI), which hovered above the neutral mark at the time of writing.
