Shiba Inu’s [SHIB] likely path following this breakdown

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

On its daily chart, Shiba Inu [SHIB] sellers expressed their willingness to invalidate the recently discovered buying rally. The meme-token was unable to break through the $0.0129 resistance near its high liquidity range.

The recent bearish pull compelled a drop below the 20 EMA (red) and the 50 EMA (cyan), confirming an increase in selling momentum. The $0.0103 support could be crucial in determining the token’s chances of recovering.


At press time, SHIB traded at $0.01091, down by 8.56% in the last 24 hours.

A trend reversal in favor of sellers?

SHIB exhibited a strong correlation with Dogecoin’s rally as it witnessed over 34% ROI after rebounding from the $0.00984 baseline support.

This revival chalked out a bullish flag structure on the daily timeframe. After a firm rejection of higher prices near the $0.0129-mark, SHIB plunged below its vital $0.0118 resistance (previous support). Consequently, bears invalidated the bullish inclinations of the flag.  

While the 20 EMA (red) looking south again, the buyers should keep an eye out for a potential bearish crossover with the 50 EMA (cyan). 

Any immediate or eventual buying rebuttals can face a barrier near the $0.0118 resistance. A reversal from this ceiling can present near-term shorting opportunities. A close above this level can induce a retest of the $0.0129-resistance.

Should SHIB sustain its newly found selling pressure, the first major support zone could continue to be in the $0.0103-$0.00984 range. 

Furthermore, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) plunged below the midline in its press time southbound movement. A continued sway below the 50-mark would continue oppressing the buying efforts. 

Nonetheless, the buyers should look for a potential rebound from On-Balance-Volume’s (OBV) support. A convincing rebound could create room for a bullish divergence.
