The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator shows small fluctuations around the zero line, pointing to a lack of strong momentum in either direction until recently.

The slight positive divergence in the MACD, with it moving above the signal line, is interpreted by analysts as a subtle shift toward bullish momentum.

SHIB’s price stabilized around forty-eight hours ago.

As can be seen below, the meme coin has also been predominantly trending within the bounds of the Bollinger Bands, with a few exceptions where the price has touched or exceeded the upper or lower bands.

The Ichimoku Cloud remained above the price for most of the displayed period, showing a dominant bearish sentiment.

However, as SHIB approached the cloud towards the latest data points, it indicated a possible change in momentum. Penetrating the cloud could trigger a short-term bullish reversal, but it likely won’t be sustained.

52% of SHIB holders were making money at the prevailing price at press time, which was an encouraging sign for overall market sentiment. However, 46% of holders were out of the money.
