Cosmos (ATOM) was trading higher on Tuesday, as prices earlier in the day reached a multi-week high.
The ATOM/USD pair reached its highest level since June 10 on Wednesday, as prices fell below the $10 threshold.
Following the Fourth of July celebrations, during which prices dipped to $8.14, ATOM reached an intraday high of $9.27.
The price of ATOM has increased significantly over the past several weeks with the revelation that, by September, Cosmos projects would be able to attain the highest level of security in the ecosystem.
Cosmos enables developers to design app-specific blockchains that are easily interoperable.

ATOM has been trending upwards since the middle of June, and on June 30 produced its first higher low. It is currently breaking through a short-term resistance band.

ATOM Set To Breach $10 Level
Following recent increases, ATOM may be poised to once again surpass $10 as bullish pressure builds. Although recent trend has been on the rise, after Tuesday’s peak, gains slowed and some investors chose to leave rather than pursue more gains.
This concern arose when prices reached a point of resistance at $9.10, which has not been breached for roughly four weeks.
The price charts are favorable for bullish market participants. The RSI supported their positive outlook, as it was far over 50 and exhibited an uptrend during the last seven days.

Meanwhile, bullish ATOM price forecasts are unlikely to be realized so long as the Bitcoin price remains in a decline.
As soon as the BTC price stabilizes, cryptocurrencies may experience a relief rally. Nonetheless, if Bitcoin falls to new lows, the situation for altcoins such as ATOM could become dire.
