Market structure could flip bearish on higher timeframes

TON’s impressive bullish ride from $1.6 hit a critical price roadblock at $2.6. Ever since, the altcoin has been on a downward spiral with Toncoin wiping out almost half of its bullish gains.

The recent price pump from the 61.8% Fib was flipped to a lower high by bears, as the selling pressure continued to rise. With the price currently trading at $1.98 (61.8% Fib), a break of the level could see TON’s market structure on the higher timeframes become fully bearish.

A break of the dynamic support at the Fib level could see more losses with TON projected to hit the $1.8 price level (78.6% Fib) in the short term.

Meanwhile, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) highlighted the selling pressure, as it remained firmly under the neutral 50. Also, the Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) stayed in negative territory, as capital outflows continued.

Data from Coinalyze showed that the Open Interest continued to dip aggressively along with the price. Toncoin’s OI fell another 5.1% over the past 24 hours. This hinted at the formation of a bearish trend in the short term.
