The most recent analysis piece on Shiba Inu by AMBCrypto highlighted a critical resistance on the charts at $0.000007. This level was briefly flipped to support on Monday, 16 October, but the bulls were unable to hold on.
The volume indicators showed firm selling pressure behind Shiba Inu
On the four-hour chart, the market structure of SHIB was flipped bearishly after the fall below $0.00000693. It sank to the local lows at $0.00000673. The previous such drop occurred on 9 October, and a set of Fibonacci levels (pale yellow) were plotted.
The 61.8% and 78.6% levels did not see an H4 trading session close above it, even though there was a momentary spike to the $0.00000729 level. Over the past 12 hours, SHIB bulls have managed to halt the bearish march. This suggested that there was a chance of a bounce toward the $0.000007 level again. Invalidation of this idea would be a drop below the $0.00000666 level.
However, the technical indicators reflected bearishness. It must be noted that the Relative Strength Index (RSI) and Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) are lagging by nature, but both showed hefty bearish momentum and significant capital outflow. The On-Balance Volume (OBV) has also trended lower over the past two weeks.
