Monero might be done with its selloff as it forms an inverse head and shoulders pattern on its 1-hour time frame. Price is already testing the neckline and a strong upside break could confirm that an uptrend is in order.
This could lead to a climb that’s the same height as the chart pattern, which spans $86 to around $96. However, the 100 SMA is below the longer-term 200 SMA to indicate that the path of least resistance is still to the downside. In other words, there’s still a chance for the selloff to resume.
Then again, the price has already climbed past the moving averages to reflect a pickup in bullish pressure. RSI is still pointing up but hovering close to overbought levels to reflect exhaustion among buyers. Stochastic is also heading higher but is also dipping into overbought territory. Both oscillators turning lower could signal a return in selling pressure.
Monero has been on a tear in the past 24 hours, rising by over 2% against the dollar and outpacing several of its altcoin rivals. Keep in mind that Local Monero has just recently celebrated its anniversary and may be one of the factors propping it up.
