WazirX Trade Desk said November’s dip was actually the weakest correction of 2021, overshadowed by Bitcoin’s whopping 53.4% correction over three months between April and July. The most recent correction in September was the second-deepest, reaching 37% from April’s ATH, it added.

itsblockchain.com said NFT-based tokens are in a long-term bull market and the price can keep going higher due to the huge retail demand. “Metaverse-based tokens have also seen a massive price spike, and we can expect them to cool down a bit before making the next higher leg up,” he added.

The internet of things is amongst the hottest concepts in tech right now, along with blockchain itself. IoTeX is a decentralized network that hopes to generate value from a synergy of both technologies, functioning as a platform for IoT devices on decentralized ledgers, such as blockchain-enabled cameras and supply chain monitoring tools.
Its token – IOTX – represents the value the market sees in this opportunity; it is already up more than 12x since July 2021. After months of consolidation, IOTX initiated a massive rally, rising by over 400% (from $0.056 to $0.262) within a fortnight in early November.
This was followed by a correction that tested its support levels all the way to sub $0.15. It is currently well within range of the golden pocket of its rise, the .66 and .618 fibonacci retracement support levels at $0.12-$0.135. A bounce from here is a good long opportunity, especially if Bitcoin reclaims its key weekly level of $60K and undergoes a rally.
IOTX’s correction has also formed a parallel channel whose levels have been well respected. Its confluence with the .618 fibonacci retracement makes $0.126 a very strong support level, while on the upside, IOTX will need to break past the channels’ confluence with another level at $0.183.
Support: $0.135, $0.126
Resistance: $0.159, $0.183
