Binance disclosed that it will implement a pricing limit of ±1 percent on the market price during the first 15 minutes of trading in order to prevent market manipulation.

The launch of XTZ/USDT perpetual contract on Binance Futures could be the catalyst that pushes this cryptocurrency to new yearly highs as it recently broke above a hurdle that was holding its price for the past two years.

A bull rally on the horizon

Since. Jan 3, Tezos entered a bull rally that has seen its price surge by nearly over 80 percent. The bullish impulse allowed it to break above the $1.80 resistance level. This significant barrier was containing XTZ from a further advance since September 2018. Now, it seems like this cryptocurrency could be preparing for a further advance.

Based on its 3-day chart, Tezos broke out of an inverse head-and-shoulders. This technical pattern estimates a momentum reversal from bearish to bullish. Closing above the $1.80 resistance level, also known as the neckline, served as confirmation of this bullish formation and now this crypto could climb up to $2.74.

This target is given by the head-and-shoulders pattern and it is determined by measuring the distance between the head and the neckline and adding it to the breakout point.

Binance’s new derivatives product could bring a new inflow of capital into Tezos. This could allow it to continue trending up and meet the target given by the bullish formation mentioned above. Time will tell whether this event would indeed be a pivotal point for XTZ’s trend.
