Cosmos (ATOM), like other major coins, is feeling the heat from the rising tensions in Eastern Europe. The coin has seen some decline over the past few days, and as bears eye the $25-mark, ATOM has remained quite resilient in the face of this massive pressure. Here are some highlights:
- Bulls have fiercely defended the $27.64 support in recent days.
- However, at press time that threshold was breached with ATOM now trading at $26.60.
- Despite this, we expect ATOM to bounce back in the near term.

ATOM – Price action and prediction
After some selling pressure last week, ATOM looked poised to return to its support zone of $25. But bulls managed to fend off selling pressure, maintaining the price action above $27 for the most part.
However, at the time of writing, this important zone had been breached. ATOM was trading at $26.66, down about 7% over the last 24 hours. Nonetheless, we still think that ATOM will bounce back above $27.
It will be interesting however to watch how long the bulls can keep the coin above that. If indeed we open Monday above $27, then expect ATOM to surge past its 200-day SMA of around $30. The coin could even gain further and hit $32 in the coming days. But if bears manage to keep the price below $27, we could see a drop below $25 with further weakness following.
Why you should consider Cosmos (ATOM)
