Is SHIB price at a crucial point in its history?
After experiencing a great rally at the beginning of the year, Shiba Inu’s (SHIB) price has been steadily decreasing since February 5th, despite the beta launch of Shibarium and an increase in monthly burn rates. Currently trading at $0.00000804, SHIB is possibly at the most important point in its young history.
An analysis of the 1-day chart shows that on February 5th, 2023, SHIB reached a local high of $0.00001575. From that point until early May, the price formed a descending triangle pattern with a horizontal trend line at $0.000010 as support for a long time. This price level was also aligned with the 23.6% Fibonacci level.
Most Important Moment In Shiba Inu Price History?
When the trend line was broken to the downside, the downtrend continued rapidly and all year-to-date gains were wiped out. However, the Shiba Inu price is currently exhibiting a triple bottom chart pattern, which may provide one last hope for the price.
The price area at $0.00000776 served as the last support back in mid-June 2022 and late December 2022, and now again. Shiba Inu meets all three characteristics of the chart pattern.
- What’s next as the avalanche nears a crucial support level?
- What is Ecoterra, the sustainable coin that raised $4.9 million, amidst the SEC’s crackdown on the crypto industry while Polygon’s price is plummeting to zero?
- Nostr collaborates with Zebedee to create a new social media platform backed by Jack Dorsey.
First, the three lows must be roughly equal in price and spaced apart by a certain distance (June and December 2022, June 2023). Second, volume must be decreasing throughout the pattern, which is a sign that the bears are losing strength. Looking at the time pattern of SHIB trading volume, this condition can also be considered to be met.
Third, Shiba Inu has been in a steady downtrend with lower highs since the all-time high of late October 2021. Hence, the decisive moment might have come now: While the trading volume decreases during downward movements, the volume should increase during upward movements when the price breaks through the resistance levels. Only if that happens, a trend reversal seems possible.
The first resistance to break through is at $0.0000817. If successful, the 50-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) currently at $0.00000907 could come into focus. However, the most important resistance to confirm a fake breakout is the 23.6% Fibonacci level at $0.000010.
The bullish case of Shiba Inu is also supported by a possible bullish divergence of the RSI in the 1-day chart. This occurs when the RSI indicates an oversold condition (SHIB’s RSI dropped as low as 24 in May), followed by a higher low associated with lower price lows.
Thus, the RSI of Shiba Inu price in the 1-day chart could indicate bullish momentum. The break above the oversold zone in recent days could be a signal for a new buy position. But the bearish case is still strong as well.
SHIB traders are hoping to avoid a drop below $0.00000716 at all costs. If this happens, it would be an alarming signal that SHIB could test the September 2021 low around $0,000006.
