The movement of the Bollinger bands suggested that ATOM’s price was in a less volatile zone, indicating that the chances of an unprecedented price decline were unlikely.
ATOM’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) also took a sideways path under the neutral zone, hinting at a few slow-moving days. Also, the Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) looked bullish as it registered an uptick.
