A possibility of reversal could be imminent if the bulls continue to defend the $0.5042 support. It could boost their efforts to breach the descending line and the 20-period EMA. At the time of writing, SAND was trading at $0.5266.

SAND managed to inflict a rally in mid-February, but the price rejection at $0.8917 invited bears into the market. The bearish 20 EMA crossover with 50/100 EMA on February 25 induced further intense selling sinking the gaming coin below $0.6012 as the price action toiled below the descending line (white). 

At press time, the $0.5082 support had proved steady. The price action oscillated in the $0.5082 – $0.5408 range. A convincing close above $0.54 and the descending line could set SAND on a recovery path. The continued recovery efforts could face headwinds at $0.57 – $0.60 before a likely reversal. 

However, should sellers continue to subdue bulls from any recovery, SAND could sink below $0.5082 and attract aggressive selling afterward. The first key support area in an extended drop is the $0.488 – $0.453 range.  

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) recovered from the oversold territory, highlighting easing selling pressure. Similarly, the OBV exhibited an uptick, highlighting bulls’ hope for a reversal chance. 

Improved funding rates

Despite the overbearing negative market sentiment, SAND saw a surge in funding rates across more than half of its exchanges. The positive funding rate reflected the mild rally seen on the spot market at press time.

However, the past four hours’ SAND long/short ratio could undermine bulls’ recovery efforts. The ratio was slightly skewed toward the sellers, and buyers should track any improvement on this end before making moves.

In addition, investors should track BTC’s price action to make more profitable moves.
