Consequently, SHIB formed an ascending triangle on the daily chart and reflected a visible bullish edge.
Further, the north-looking 20 EMA (red) and the 50 (cyan) assumed immediate support post their recent bullish crossover. The eventual break-out candlestick on 14 August entailed a massive uptick in buying volumes.
Owing to the bullish engulfing candlestick, an immediate recovery above the $0.0152-mark can make way for an extended recovery.
In this case, SHIB could witness a recovery toward the $0.017-$0.02 range. An inability to find a close above this mark would only provoke a sluggish phase near the EMAs.
After swiftly piercing through the 70-mark, the overbought Relative Strength Index (RSI) saw a slight pullback over the last few days. The buyers must strive to maintain a spot above the 59-level support to heighten the chances of continued recovery.
Also, the Accumulation/Distribution indicator’s lower troughs were rather flat while bullishly diverging with the price. A sustained close below its immediate support could delay the near-term recovery prospects.
