Looking at the price chart indicators on the 12-hour timeframe showed a bearish bias. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) dropped sharply out of the overbought zone and dipped under neutral 50. This denoted a spike in selling pressure.

Likewise, the Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) flipped negative to highlight significant capital outflows over the period under consideration.

Riding the short-term bearish wave, the next target for sellers would be a 7% move to the $14.45 support level. If sellers lose momentum, bulls can keep prices in a range before making another attempt to flip the $16 price level.
