However, the $0.0950 support and the 55 SMA acted as a strong buy zone. Besides, the price rebounded after tagging the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of the last wave from the $0.0863 low to $0.1080 high. The price is currently trading just below the $0.1000 level and it seems like there could be a strong rally above the $0.1000 resistance.
