Latest IOTA News
The IOTA foundation has announced a partnership with Crypto Storage AG, a subsidiary of Crypto Finance AG, to create the first institutional grade IOTA storage infrastructure. This provides a way to store large volumes of IOTA in a safe and secure manner.
The solution created through the partnership will meet the needs of both private and public investors as well as financial intermediaries, providing them a way to safely store their IOTA tokens. It is also secure enough for institutional investors to manage access to their IOTA tokens.
Perhaps more importantly, this storage can also be used by IOTA partners that are working on applications to share data across a wide range of industries including the automotive industry, smart-energy, supply chains and global trade industries.
The security provided by Crypto Storage AG will also help for these aforementioned companies to meet their institutional and compliance requirements.

Trend: Bullish Above $0.40
If the market can clear the $0.40 handle, then the trend will enter into another bullish trading condition.
However, price action is currently trading sideways within the range described above as the market players battle to decide the next direction of movement within the market.
Where is the Resistance for IOTA Above the Trading Range?
If the bulls can group their efforts and push price action above the upper boundary of the trading range at $0.40, they will encounter higher resistance at the bearish .786 Fibonacci Retracement level (drawn in orange) priced at $0.4565.
This is closely followed by the medium-term 1.272 Fibonacci Extension level (drawn in purple) priced at $0.4638.
If the buyers can continue to press price action higher, then more resistance will be located at the bearish .886 Fibonacci Retracement level (drawn in orange) priced at $0.4882. This is closely followed by the 1.414 Fibonacci Extension level (drawn in purple) priced at $0.4925.
If the bullish pressure causes price action to then break above the $0.50 handle, the final level of resistance to highlight in the short term is located at the 1.618 Fibonacci Extension level (drawn in purple) priced at $0.5336.
Where is the Support Beneath the Market?
If the sellers step in and push price action below the trading range at $0.3656, we can expect immediate support toward the downside to be initially located at the bearish .382 FIbonacci Retracement level (drawn in orange) priced at $0.3281.
Further support located below $0.32 can be expected at the short-term .5 and .618 Fibonacci Retracement levels (drawn in green), priced at $0.3056 and $0.2820 respectively.
