Cosmos is staging a minor technical correction on Wednesday, after the popular cryptocurrency turned lower alongside the broader market. After coming under pressure towards the September price close, the ATOM / USD pair recently rallied to its highest trading level since September 21st.

The invalidation target of the head and shoulders pattern would take the cryptocurrency toward the $5.00 level.

Looking at the near-term bullish case for Cosmos, a double-bottom pattern has also been created, price is also still trading above its 200-period moving average on the four-hour time frame.
