The metrics look good
While these developments happened, APE’s price action did not correspond, and it registered negative weekly growth. At press time, APE was trading at $3.88 with a market capitalization of more than $1.4 billion.
However, APE’s on-chain metrics revealed that things might soon take a U-turn in APE’s favor. For instance, APE’s MVRV ratio went up over the last week, which was a positive signal. APE’s volume also followed a similar path. Furthermore, the exchange outflow spiked quite a few times last week, which was a bullish signal.

Investors can expect this
APE’s daily chart also gave a somewhat bullish indication, a few of the market indicators suggested a price surge in the coming days. The MACD displayed a bullish crossover, suggesting that the buyers had an advantage in the market.
As per the Exponential Moving Average (EMA) Ribbon, the gap between the 20-day and 55-day EMAs was reducing, increasing the chances of a crossover favoring the bulls. Nonetheless, the Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) registered a downtick, which might be concerning.
