Shiba Inu’s momentum shifts bearish as sellers force a retracement of most of the past month’s gains
After 13 August, SHIB faced losses that amounted to 33.1% within four days as the prices crashed from $0.0000108 to $0.00000725 on 17 August. There was a bounce on 18 August as SHIB climbed to retest the $0.0000086 area, where it faced rejection thereafter.
The market structure on the 1-day chart showed strong bearishness, and the Relative Strength Index (RSI) also fell below neutral 50 to reinforce this idea. The On-Balance Volume (OBV) stuck to a support level from earlier in August but the Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) showed significant capital flow out of the market.
This selling pressure was likely to drive SHIB back to the $0.000007 zone, where a bullish order block (red box) from 28 June was present. This zone might not offer a strong positive reaction upon the next retest, as the first test and subsequent bounce appeared to have reversed from the $0.0000086 resistance in the past two days.

The daily active addresses also trended slowly downward over the past three weeks. Together they showed decreased user adoption and activity and did not reflect bullishly on SHIB.
