However, this week could see significant volatility and price swings. United States’ CPI data for May will be released on 13 June, followed by the US FOMC meeting on 13/14 June. A hike in U.S CPI data and a dovish FOMC stance could rally Bitcoin [BTC] and PEPE.
Will the trend of ATLs ease?
PEPE has been making new all-time lows (ATLs) in June. On 5 June, it hit a low of $0.00000095, closing below the mid-May swing low.
At the time of writing, it made another low of $0.00000084 on the 4-hour chart. This captures the shrinking market as chalked by the descending channel (white).
Over the weekend (10/11 June), PEPE faced rejection at the range high ($0.00000120) and eased below the mid-range. So far, the mid-range has become a key resistance level and could drag PEPE to the range low of $0.00000073.
However, PEPE could smash the mid-range barrier and target the range high around $0.00000108. The upswing is likely if the U.S CPI data and the FOMC announcement are positive. A bullish breakout could set PEPE to target $0.00000120, $0.00000132, or the 50% Fib level ($0.00000152).
Meanwhile, the RSI and Accumulation/Distribution indicators moved sideways, indicating a likely narrow consolidation before a rally or price dump.
What’s the state of PEPE’s sell/buy pressure?
Sellers heavily dominated the spot and futures markets, at the time of writing. For example, the supply on exchanges (red line) has risen steadily since mid-May, indicating more PEPE moved into CEXs (central exchanges) for offloading.
Over the same period, supply outside exchanges, which tracks short-term accumulation, dipped. It captures the rising short-term selling pressure in spot markets.
