The $1405 was a key price reaction level since late September. A crack below it, as seen at the time of writing, could encourage sellers to extend gains.
Besides, MKR’s short-term price trend flipped negative, as shown by price action below the 50-Exponential Moving Average (EMA). Other key price indicators were also negative, as the downsloping Relative Strength Index (RSI) and Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) demonstrated. It underscored a bearish scenario amidst a spike in selling pressure and capital outflow.
So, sellers could drag MKR to short-term demand and H4 bullish order block (OB) at $1350 (white). An extended drop to the support will offer an extra 3.8%, shorting gains from $1405.
