Bitcoin’s [BTC] movement below $28k could accelerate the process of SHIB’s price dipping even lower.
Sellers made the most of bearish momentum
SHIB’s price dip began from the $0.000011 price zone considering the H4 timeframe. The bearish order block confluence with the resistance level led to a strong downward move. The bearish momentum saw the price breach three other support levels to take SHIB to the January lows of $0.00000088, as of press time.
This highlighted the strong bearish push in the market. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) remained in the oversold zone for over 48 hours with a reading of 25.7, as of the time of writing. The On-Balance Volume (OBV) also remained in perpetual decline.
Despite the bearish momentum, one indicator suggested that a bullish reversal might be on the way. The Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) rose sharply and stood at 0.09.
The $0.000008 support level acted as the bullish springboard for SHIB’s January rally. With the price approaching this support level again, SHIB could see a bullish rally soon.
