In the past few days, there was a renewed interest in the meme-coin after Bitcoin [BTC] rallied to $26k, up from $24k. But any faltering at $26.6k resistance for BTC could make SHIB’s range high a key obstacle for near-term bulls.
Besides, Shiba Swap, a native DEX (Decentralized Exchange) for SHIB saw a decline in TVL (total locked value) from $25 million on 1 June to about $21 million at the time of writing. It highlighted the liquidity squeeze and lack of investors’ interest in adding more volume to SHIB’s projects.
Can SHIB clear the range-high hurdle?
SHIB has been oscillating between $0.00000651 and $0.00000698 for the past seven days. At press time, price action retested the range high of $0.00000698, which aligned with the pocket within the 23.6% – 38.2% Fib levels. The Fib tool was based on the May swing high and June swing low.
The RSI (Relative Strength Index) climbed above the 50-mark but eased near 60 after hitting the range high ($0.00000698). Similarly, the CMF (Chaikin Money Flow) has stayed above the zero mark for a while, indicating positive capital inflows into SHIB.
But the H4’s market structure was still bearish at the time of writing. A close above the range high could flip the structure to bullish. But bears could form a strong defence at 38.2% Fib level ($0.00000725) or $0.00000748.
Also, a price rejection at the range high ($0.00000698), especially if BTC falters at $26.6k, could set SHIB to retest the range low of $0.00000651.
Supply on exchanges dipped; sentiment remains negative
How much are 1,10,100 SHIBs worth today?
