BONK to extend losses

An assessment of BONK’s key technical indicators on a 1-day chart hinted at the possibility of a further decline in the memecoin’s value. 

Signaling that bears are in control of the market, readings from its Directional Movement Index (DMI) showed its positive directional index (blue) resting below its negative index (red). These lines have been so positioned since 9th April.

When an asset’s DMI is set up this way, it suggests that its downward price movement is stronger than any potential for an upward correction. 

Further, the altcoin’s key momentum indicators were spotted below their respective neutral lines at the time of writing. BONK’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) was 45.28, and its Money Flow Index (MFI) was 45.09.

These values showed that BONK distribution outpaced its accumulation, thereby putting downward pressure on its price.

In addition, its Elder-Ray Index has posted only negative values since 2nd April. This indicator measures the relationship between the strength of buyers and sellers in the market.

When its value is negative, it means there is an uptick in selling activity as bear power becomes more significant.

Confirming the strength of the bears, BONK’s MACD line was below the signal and zero lines as of this writing. 

When an asset’s MACD line falls below its signal line and returns a negative value, it is a bearish signal. This suggests that its short-term trend is weaker than its longer-term trend. Traders take this as a sign to exit long positions and take short ones.
