On a lower time frame, the COMP prices have been squeezed in the range between $35 to $40 and are likely to break out/breakdown in the coming few weeks. As of now bulls have succeeded to defend the $35 support and supertrend indicator also generated buy signal at $37 So, prices are likely to breakout $40 and $42 level which will help the bulls to push the price higher with momentum.

The aggressive traders can look for buying opportunities at current levels for the target of $50 and above by keeping $32 SL on a closing basis but conservative investors and traders must wait for $42 breakout for creating any buy positions in the COMP.
