Can PEPE Maintain its Bullish Momentum?

In addition to the Coinbase listing, multiple signals including technical indicators point to a PEPE bullish outlook. For instance, the coin’s price just jumped above its average price for the past two months. This could signal a comeback from the recent drop and a potential rise in price in the future.

Adding to the bullish signs, the short-term average price is also on track to climb above the 55-day average (EMA55). This specific crossover called a golden cross, is seen by technical analysts as a strong confirmation of a bull market, where prices typically experience sustained increases.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI)  which stands at 51 shows there is no decisive control for the bulls or bears. Additionally, the Average Directional Index (ADX) sits at 20, indicating a weak trend. This suggests the recent price drop might be losing momentum, potentially paving the way for a reversal.
