On June 10, Rune price broke the support level of $1.07 and formed support at $0.79. Recently, the cryptocurrency’s price started to gain bullish momentum and started to rise toward $1. The move was halted at $1.01 and the price retraced slightly to form support at the $0.95 level. It again gained bullish momentum and shattered the resistance of $1.01.
Currently, the price is facing resistance from $1.10. The previous candle closed as a strong bearish candle and the current candle has broken the low of the previous candle. The price is currently headed toward the resistance turned support level of $1.01.

A break of $0.95 would push the price further below toward $0.79, causing an overall loss of roughly 21.52% from the $1.01 support level. On the other hand, if the price can break the resistance level of $1.10, the next target for the price is $1.21, which would cause an increase of approximately 9.99%.
