Aptos (APT) Breaks Key Resistance; Aims for $20

The market volatility which affected major cryptocurrencies didn't have any effect on Aptos (APT) with the altcoin breaking a key price resistance.

Aptos (APT) defied the short-term market retracement to break above another resistance level and extend its bullish run. Over the past 24 hours, Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and other major cryptocurrencies experienced a sharp price drop before paring losses.

BTC dropped from its all time high of $69.1k to $59.4k before recovering to trade at $66.6k, as of the time of writing. Major altcoins such as ETH, SOL, LINK also followed this price action with a sharp drop and a price recovery afterwards.

However, strong capital inflows into APT saw the altcoin stay ahead of the market volatility with buyers looking to hit $20.

Bulls Sustain Buying Pressure

The daily timeframe chart highlighted the dominance of buyers on APT’s price action. This was evidenced by the sharp price rise on Feb 28 and again on Mar 5. Both bullish candles broke existing selling pressure at the $11 and $13 price levels respectively.

Building on these bullish gains, the Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) rose to +0.27, signaling more capital flowing into APT. Similarly, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) stayed in the overbought zone to show massive buying pressure.

Based on these indicators, buyers can open long positions between $14-$15 with a target to reach $20.
