  • The crypto looked to have broken out of an ascending triangle pattern but recently fell below the resistance level from the pattern as well as the higher low trendline. This shows bears have taken over the crypto and are pushing it lower.
  • The crypto trades below both the 50-day moving average (green) and the 200-day moving average (blue). This shows the crypto is trading with bearish sentiment and each of these moving averages may hold as an area of resistance in the future.
  • The Relative Strength Index (RSI) has been fading lower since mid-November and now sits at 37. This shows the crypto is seeing much more selling pressure than buying pressure. If the RSI falls below the 30 mark it will enter into the oversold area and see a heavy amount of sellers.
