The Shiba Inu (SHIB) price may be facing the most important moment this year, which could either push the price up another 30% or seal its stay in the bear market. For the SHIB bulls, now is the time to show their true strength.
To recall: earlier this year, SHIB experienced a furious rally of close to 100%. But since the yearly high on February 4, at $0.00001597, the Shiba Inu price has been in a descending trend channel, which has even pushed the price well below the yearly opening price at around $0.000008.
Over the past weekend, the long-awaited breakout from the descending trend channel took place. The Shiba Inu price broke above the top of the trend channel at $0.0000076 and managed to hold firm above this level on Sunday. However, some selling pressure can be observed today (Monday). A retest of the breakout from the trend channel is taking place.
Based on this, it is now up to the SHIB bulls to confirm the trend and avoid a fakeout. If this fails, investors could quickly lose interest in Shiba Inu again and the price could fall towards the mid-range of the trend channel and the yearly low at $0.000006.
If the breakout is confirmed, however, resistance at $0.00000833 could become the first target. At this price level, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level is also located.
With the daily RSI currently sitting at 49, there is still much room left for an explosive move north which could send SHIB on a 30% rally towards the resistance area between $0.00000969 (200-day EMA) and $0.00000977 (38.2% Fibonacci retracement level), before the psychologically important level of $0.00001 is also within reach. At this point, a breather from a possible rally can be expected.
