OmiseGo or OMG is built on the Ethereum blockchain. Users can transfer coins from one blockchain to another without employing a transitional exchange. OMG Network allows participants to transfer ETH and ERC20 tokens significantly faster and cheaper than when transacting directly on the Ethereum network.

It has a market cap of $1.21 billion and a circulating supply of 140,245,398 OMG coins. At the time of writing, OMG was trading around $8.745, reflecting a gain of about 6.55% approximately over the past 24 hours.

OMG made an all-time high of $20.124 last month. Since then the asset has plunged almost 63%, making a low at $7.45. However, OMG has made a dragonfly doji (bullish reversal) pattern at the crucial support level of $7.5 and has started moving upwards.

The asset can face stiff resistance around $9.5-$10 (20-day moving average). Once the breakout occurs above the resistance with good volumes, we can expect the prices to further rally up to $13.

Major Levels

Support: $7.45, $6.25

Resistance: $9.5, $12.5
