ATOM/USD fell to a bottom of $12.85 earlier in the day, which comes less than 24 hours after trading at $13.94.

Looking at the chart, today’s move follows two breakouts, first the $13.00 level, then a move below a long-term floor on the RSI.

If the momentum continues to move lower over the next few days, there is a high possibility that ATOM could head for lower support at $12.50.
