More tricks up its sleeves?

As of this writing, FTM’s Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) dynamic line was pegged at the central (0.0) line.

This position signals sufficient bullish pressure on an asset’s price. Therefore, an uptrend in the price of FTM could be expected.

However, with more FTM coins taken out of exchanges than are taken in, investors should tread cautiously.
