What’s next for SHIB’s price action?
SHIB formed lower highs on the 12-hour chart, a bearish market structure bias. The bias could only be invalidated and flipped bullish if price action reclaimed the May range-low of $0.00000846.
In the meantime, the flipping of the support zone of $0.00000785 – $0.00000824 (red) to resistance further reinforced sellers’ leverage. As such, sellers could drop SHIB to the H12 bullish order block of $0.00000713 – $0.00000727 (cyan) or $0.00000698.
Conversely, bulls could see a glimmer of hope if SHIB reclaims the May range-low of $0.00000846. The RSI has been below the 50 neutral levels since mid-August, underscoring the bearish pressure over the same period.
Interestingly, the CMF crossed the zero level in late August and hasn’t cracked it. It shows that SHIB recorded impressive capital inflows despite the bearish pressure.
Demand in the derivatives market dipped
According to Coinalyze, the Open Interest rates improved between 3-6 September but eased afterward. It shows that demand for SHIB dropped in the last two days, reinforcing a bearish bias.
