The CMF was also below -0.05 to highlight significant capital flow out of the market. Together they showed a rise in bearish pressure in the market. Moreover, the Directional Movement Index also showed a strong downtrend in progress, with both the -DI (red) and ADX (yellow) above 20.
The price action on the daily timeframe showed bearish bias as well. The move below the recent higher low at $0.074 signified a break in the previously bullish market structure.
