RUNE was one of the biggest gainers in crypto markets for a second consecutive session, as it further cemented itself as the world’s 45th-largest cryptocurrency by market cap.

Following a high of $9.52 on Friday, RUNE/USD rallied to a greater high of $10.26 to kick off the weekend’s session.

Today’s peak is the highest level RUNE had traded at since December 3, when prices were falling from highs around $13.

RUNE/USD – Daily Chart

Saturday’s move saw the 14-day RSI indicator once again touch its resistance point of 79.11, which hasn’t been broken since November.

Looking at this chart, $11.30 is the next likely destination for bulls attempting to extend recent gains, however the road to this point will likely be turbulent.

Prices are overbought, and a reversal could be on the cards, despite the bullish sentiment of the last two sessions.
