However, there is a risk of the price falling back as the key technical indicator RSI shows overbought conditions. Accordingly, it could drop below $ 90 – almost 40% lower.
The bearish prediction is based on the relationship between the AXS price and the RSI indicators. In particular, when the RSI rises above 70, this mainly drives the AXS to consolidate sideways or to decline thereafter.
In both cases, however, the token tested the 20-day exponential moving average (20-day EMA, green wave in the graph below) as temporary support.

Looking at the chart, the RSI has closed above 70 three times since July 1, 2021, each time causing the price to hit the 20-day EMA within 7-30 days. Therefore, when the RSI is overbought, buying AXS is risky for traders and increases the likelihood of short-term losses.
Therefore, AXS could decline similarly in the coming days / weeks, with the next downside target being around $ 87. However, if price continues to move forward, as it did after the overbought signal from July, the downside target could be $ 90 or higher.
Hodl is a better strategy?
The 20-day EMA serves as a buy indicator for traders after RSI-led corrections. Specifically, the trader decided to buy the dip pending re-testing and closing the price above the previous high.
The result shows that traders who did not sell AXS during the correction to the 20-day EMA are making a pretty good profit on paper – the price has risen more than 2,500% since July 1st.
The growing utility of AXS in the virtual world of Axie Infinity (Lunacia) is one of the main catalysts for demand from gamers and traders. In particular, players manipulate the colorful creature Axies to obtain two types of tokens.

These strong fundamentals added traders’ confidence in AXS. This explains the possibility of recovery after a sharp correction in the 20-day EMA.
AXS Staking Service, start of DEX
The latest buying trend in the Axie Infinity market is due in part to a new feature that enables AXS holders to make profitable use of their tokens. Since its launch on Thursday, the staking feature has attracted more than 12.44 million AXS tokens (~ $ 1.88 billion at current rates).
