Recently, it started an upside correction above the $0.1000 level. The price broke the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the last slide from the $0.1180 high to $0.0986 low. However, the $0.1060 and $0.1065 levels are currently preventing further gains. More importantly, there is a bearish flag forming with resistance near $0.1085 on the 4-hours chart.

The 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the last slide from the $0.1180 high to $0.0986 low is also near the $0.1083 level. Therefore, a successful close above the $0.1085 and $0.1100 levels is needed to start a decent recovery. The next important resistance is near the $0.1135, above which the price could revisit the $0.1150 and $0.1180 levels.
Conversely, if it’s a real bearish flag, there could be a downside break below the $0.1020 support. If the bulls fail to defend the $0.1020 and $0.1000 support levels, the price could even break the $0.0986 swing low. The next support is near the $0.0950 level, where the bulls might take a stand.
