We can see that price action has also been trading within the confines of a large triangle consolidation pattern. The triangle is clearly characterised by the upper boundary as the falling resistance trend line and the lower boundary as the rising support line. Price action is approaching the apex of the triangle and a breakout is expected is expected to the upside if there is enough volume within the market.
Moving forward, price action is currently trading at resistance provided by the long term .786 Fibonacci Retracement level (drawn in blue) priced at $0.2558. If the bulls can push the market above this resistance and above the confines of the triangle then we can expect further resistance higher to be located at the short term .618 Fibonacci Retracement level (drawn in red) priced at $0.2844.
If the bullish momentum can push the market even higher, we can expect further resistance to be located at the .5 and .382 Fibonacci Retracement levels (drawn in red) priced at $0.32 and $0.35, respectively.
Alternatively, if the bears push the market lower we can expect immediate support below to be located at the short term .786 Fibonacci Retracement level (drawn in red) priced at $0.2335. Further support below this level can then be found at the .886 Fibonacci Retracement level (drawn in red) priced at $0.20 followed by the lower boundary of the triangle pattern.
If the bears push the market below the confines of the triangle we can expect more support at the long term .886 Fibonacci Retracement level (drawn in blue) priced at $0.1752.
The technical indicators within the market are currently producing neutral readings. The RSI indicator is currently trading at the 50 handle which indicates that neither the bulls nor the bears are in control of the momentum within the market. If we are to expect a bullish push higher, we would need to see the RSI break above the 50 handle.
