How Shiba Inu’s recent gains in the midst of the crypto winter will affect its trajectory

(From now on, SHIB prices are multiplied by 1,000 for brevity.)

Shiba Inu [SHIB] delivered a strong bullish rebuttal after reversing from the $0.00984 support level in late October. This bullish move pushed the meme token into the $0.0122-zone, close to the Point of Control (POC, red).

The bullish rebound pushed the 20 EMA (red) above the 50 EMA (cyan). The $0.0118 support may now be crucial in determining the token’s chances of recovering. SHIB was trading at $0.01196 at the time of publication.


Can the $0.0118 baseline support bullish endeavors?

SHIB’s rebound from its long-term trendline support (white, dashed) aided the buyers in propelling a highly volatile phase while clinching double-digit gains.

The token’s recent revival chalked out a bullish flag-like structure on the daily timeframe. After a firm rejection of lower prices near the $0.00984-mark, SHIB jumped above its 20/50 EMA to unveil a near-term buying edge.

While the 20/50 EMAs undertook a golden cross, the buyers could continue to control the near-term trend if they manage to prevent a bearish crossover. 

A rebound from the $0.0118-mark could induce a buying comeback. In this case, the $0.0129-mark could be the first major resistance level for the buyers to test.

An immediate or eventual close above the $0.0118-mark can induce a short-term downside for the token. Any decline below the 20/50 EMA would confirm a bullish invalidation. 

Furthermore, the OBV noted higher troughs over the last four days. This trajectory bullishly diverged with the price action.

The long/short ratio revealed this

An analysis of the SHIB’s long/short ratio across acc exchanges revealed a slight bearish advantage over the past day. Additionally, the token’s Open Interest also plunged alongside a slight decrease in its 24-hour price. These readings entailed a bearish sign for the near term.

Should the sellers capitalize on this, any break below the immediate support could delay the chances of a solid bull run.

Also, the alt shared an 86% 30-day correlation with Bitcoin. Thus, keeping an eye on Bitcoin’s movement with the overall market sentiment could be essential to identify any bullish invalidations.
