XMR/USD Daily Chart: Ranging
XMR/USD Daily Chart
On the daily chart, XMR got rejected at $143, after which recovery from lows of $121.25 brings XMR to its recent price of $126.71. The most critical resistance level however remains at $143 in which a breakout above this point would be crucial and likely to push the price of XMR towards $300 as there is very little resistance to the upside.
On the downside, increased selling pressure may drive the price of XMR down to the MA 50 coinciding around $110 which has acted as a support point since September 25. If XMR/USD fails to hold above the MA 50, an immense correction will come into play, sending the price downstream towards $95 and further to $82 at the MA 200.
XMR/USD 4-Hour Chart: Ranging
XMR/USD 4-Hour Chart
The shorter time frame shows Monero (XMR) attempting a breach past the 4-hour MA 50, a successful attempt brings up the likelihood of a further climb beyond $130. XMR has been constricted beneath the 4-hour MA 50 in the past 48 hours. The rest of the journey to $143 will depend on the crypto’s ability to take down the seller congestion at the $138 mark and $140 key level.
A demand zone is however seen around $120 which may cushion further selling pressure. The XMR/USD pair is only bullish while trading above the $120 level near the 4 hour MA 50 zone, key resistance is found at the $130 and the $140 levels. If the XMR/USD pair trades below the $120 mark, sellers may test the $110 and $93.54 levels.
