  • BONK has a bearish market structure on the 12-hour chart.
  • The sentiment behind the meme coin also leaned bearishly.

Bonk [BONK] posted strong gains during the past week, gaining 92% from 8th January to 10th January. Despite the remarkable rally, the higher timeframe price chart showed that BONK had a bearish outlook.

At press time, BONK bulls fought to defend a level of support at $0.000013. A drop below this level would likely see prices slide another 25%-30% lower.

On the 12-hour chart, BONK posted a bearish order block at $0.000016. This zone was highlighted by the red box, and has been in play since 29 December. On 10th and 11th January, BONK bulls briefly pushed prices above this area.

However, they couldn’t establish an H12 trading session close above it. Moreover, the bears were able to drive prices lower once more, signifying seller dominance. The RSI was at 48 at press time and gave an early signal that momentum has flipped bearishly.

Despite these bearish observations, the OBV has stayed above the December pump’s high. This level has acted as a support over the past few days. This suggested that the selling volume has not been overwhelming, and underlined that the bulls have some hope.
