ALGO, an altcoin by the Algorand blockchain with a market cap of $1.18 billion, continues to feel the effects of the intense selling pressure that caused its price to crash last month.
After trading within a narrow region from May to November that saw it establish $0.28 as its range low, the cryptocurrency devalued by 34% in December and found itself going all the way down to $0.163 – a marker that ended up being the asset’s current support zone.
ALGO, which has not made any significant increase in price in the last 10 days, is at the mercy of bears that are in control right now, threatening to push the digital coin’s value to $0.15 or even lower.
Technical indicators such as Relative Strength Index (RSI) and On-Balance Volume (OBV) are also currently favoring sellers, indicating that Algorand is headed into another bearish trajectory.
Algorand Paints Its Charts In Red
At the time of writing, investors and holders of the crypto asset has no reason to be happy as it remains in the “red zone” in all its price gauges.
According to latest tracking from Coingecko, ALGO is changing hands at $0.165, nearing its newly found support zone of $0.163.
Over the last 24 hours, the altcoin has gone down by almost 3% and is looking at a weekly decline of 4.7%.
On longer time frames, Algorand has declined significantly, dumping 25.6% of its value during the last two weeks and also losing 30.4% over the last 30 days.
Indeed, the cryptocurrency was among the many altcoins that struggled to gain their momentum back following the effects of the market-crashing collapse of the FTX cryptocurrency exchange.

ALGO A Viable Investment?
Guy, the pseudonymous host of Coin Bureau was recently interviewed and asked about the top digital coins that could prove to be a profitable for investors during a recession.
The host named Algorand as one, saying that its blockchain has put itself in a very good and strong position for the highly anticipated coming of the next crypto bull market.
“Algorand is a really interesting play for the next bull market. I think we could see a lot of really cool, interesting, really successful projects develop in its ecosystem during that time,” said Guy.
The Coin Bureau personality also noticed that there seems to be many developments in the asset’s network and there is a strong community backing it.
Meanwhile, Cosmos (ATOM), Arweave (AR), Osmosis (OSMO), Juno (JUNO) and Aave (AAVE) were also picked by Guy as potentially good investment in times of a recession.
