Osmosis (OSMO) is trading with a bullish bias today after the price gained approximately 60% on Sunday to trade above $1.33. At the time of writing, the Osmosis price was up 14% on the day with a 24-hour trading volume of $100.2 million and a live market cap of $481.1 million, putting it at #79 on the CoinMarketCap list.
The positive rally started on January 1, 2023, with the bulls lifting the OSMO price off the $0.675 support floor, climbing almost 100% to Sunday’s high above $1.33. The recent rally is attributed to the network developers’ plans to perform an upgrade that will see the Cosmos Decentralized Exchange (DEX) become more efficient.

The upgrade, slated to take place at block height 7937500 on January 23, 16:00 UTC, will feature several key upgrades for Osmosis. Among the important features is the launching of geometric Time Weighted Average Pricing (TWAP) in Osmosis liquidity pools.
On January 23rd $OSMO will implement a new pricing mechanism: geometric TWAP (Time Weighted Average Pricing) in liquidity pools. (better price efficiency & more rewards)

Binance describes TWAP as a finance strategy usually employed to reduce the impact of a large order on the market by distributing the large order into smaller chunks and launching them at regulated intervals over time.
With this upgrade, protocols building atop Osmosis will be able to choose between two pricing mechanisms that will be value-adding for the protocol to provide “concentrated liquidity” to users. The design enhances the capital efficiency of using a decentralized exchange together with improved rewards for liquidity pools.
Liquidity pools (LPs) are tokens that a user supplies to a decentralized exchange. In return, the LPs incentivize the users by making them liquidity providers eligible for a share of transaction fees and free tokens.
The upgrade would also ensure that pricing becomes more efficient while at the same time preventing liquidity attacks by using upward price manipulation. Noteworthy, in the past, this kind of price manipulation led to hackers executing a $100 million heist by manipulating decentralized exchanges.
Will OSMO Price Reach The $2.o Listing Price?
Since the new year, the OSMO price has been recording higher highs until January 15, when sellers entered the market with force, losing some of the gains made in the last two weeks. However, the bulls managed to recover the market and are now targeting new record highs.
At the time of writing, OSMO price was trading at $0.97 as bulls built on Sunday’s gains with a focus on pushing the DEX token higher. An increase in buying pressure from the current position could set the path for the Osmosis price to tag the resistance at $1.34, which was last tested on December 10.
In highly ambitious cases, Osmosis could rise above the said level clearing the way for a return to the price at which it was listed on Binance of $2.0 or higher to record new all-time highs. Such a move would represent a 95.25% increase from current levels.
OSMO/USD Daily Chart
The up-facing 50-day simple moving average (SMA) and the upward movement of the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator just above the zero line show that more buyers are coming into the market, and OSMO prices could increase. In addition, the OSMO price was sitting on robust support offered by the 50 SMA at $0.81, adding credence to the bullish outlook.
If buying pressure reduces and bears take charge, OSMO price could drop towards the critical support offered by the 50-day SMA and, in extreme cases, drop further to tag the swing low at $0.675.
