ARB Price Prediction: Is a New All-Time High on the Cards?

The technical analysis from the short-term 2-hour chart gives a bullish prediction for the ARB price. The main reason for this is the wave count (white).

Elliott Wave Theory is a tool used by technical analysts. Looks for recurring long-term price structures and investor behavior to determine future direction.

The most likely number of waves indicates that the price drop of the ARB token is the beginning of the fourth wave. Since the fourth wave is usually shallow, it could end at the 0.5 Fibonacci retracement support level at $1.49. The level also coincides with a predetermined horizontal support area.

Fibonacci retracement levels are lines that traders use to predict where asset prices may go. Fibonacci retracement levels indicate that after a sharp price move in one direction, the price will correct part of that increase and find support before resuming the original trend.

It can also be used to determine the top of future upward movements. On doing so, the most likely target for the top of the move is $1.90. The target was found by the 4.21 Fibonacci extension of the first wave (white) and the 1.61 extension of the previous decline (black).

However, the minimum price below the top of the first wave (red line) and $1.28 will invalidate the bullish Arbitrum price forecast. This is because according to Elliott wave guidelines, the fourth wave cannot overlap the first wave. Therefore, if that happens, the ARB price could drop towards $1.
