The above chart of Monero indicated that the price noted a common trend of a surge followed by a period of consolidation since the beginning of the month. The digital asset has maintained this move as it witnessed a surge in value a couple of days ago, pushing it past the resistance at $225.56. Currently, the price has been consolidated between $225 and $241.
As the market progresses, there were signs that this bullishness in the market may get wiped away as the bears came charging.
Although the market was witnessing great volatility earlier, the current XMR market indicated low volatility. This was highlighted by the convergence of Bollinger Bands. Meanwhile, the signal line which was supporting the price until now was seen moving above the candlesticks.
Whereas the 50 moving average was moving parallel to the candles offering support a little above $225.
Meanwhile, the Relative Strength Index has been noting that irrespective of the volatility in the market, the buying and the selling pressures in the market have remained mostly equal. At the time of writing, the RSI was valued at 52 which meant the buying and the selling pressures were now evened in the market.
A lack of momentum and volatility has maintained XMR’s consolidatory trend. However, the bears were catching up. XMR may have to put to test the support at $225 and if it fails, the value of XMR will drop close to $211.
