SHIB price retraces from higher levels
SHIB price action continues to trade in a broader range since mid-January with a brief stint in between near $0.000035 on February 7. However, the SHIB buyers failed to sustain the gains beyond the mentioned level and retraced back toward the lower range.
Now, after testing the upper range on Tuesday, the price once again pushed lower while taking support near the 50-day EMA (Exponential Moving Average) at $0.000025. A daily close below the level would trigger another round of selling with the ultimate target of $0.000022.
The moving average convergence divergence (MACD) holds above the average line with a bullish bias. Another, momentum oscillator the relative strength index (RSI) oscillates near the average line. Any downtick in the indicator would strengthen the bearish outlook in the price.
On the contrary, the above an average volume while the price tagged the upper boundary indicate the presence of the buying intention among investors. A resurgence in the buying momentum could push the price toward $0.00030.
An acceptance above the mentioned level would add-on more gains at the horizontal resistance level at $0.000035.
