SHIB’s drop after price rejection at the key sell pressure zone below $0.00001200 was prevented by the $0.00001030 support. SHIB fronted a strong recovery at press time but approached another crucial resistance at $0.00001091.

If bulls overcome the hurdle, SHIB could retest or move past $0.00001133. That would give bulls leverage to retest the sell pressure zone below $0.00001200, which could set SHIB into retrace as most holders could offload holdings at the level to lock short-term gains. 

A breach of the $0.00001030 support could attract increased selling, but the drop could slow at $0.00000987. Therefore, the lower support level could act as a short-selling target. 

The 3-hour chart showed a potential MA bullish cross alongside a golden cross, as shown by the MACD (Moving Average Convergence Divergence). A confirmation of the MA cross could tip bulls to gain more leverage and bypass the immediate hurdle at $0.00001091. 

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) was slightly above the 50-mark, showing bulls’ limited leverage, but bears can’t be completely overruled unless the immediate hurdle is cleared.
