Shiba Inu approaches key support
Shiba Inu may be forming a tight bull pennant for a possible breakout followed by upward parabolic moves. “The closest target will be $0.00002050, although with parabolic moves price may break through any resistance as long as the buying momentum persists,” Bitrue analysts noted.
A bull pennant is a triangular flag shape that signals a continuation. At press time, Shiba Inu was trading down 5.81% at $0.0000146. It remains 17% up weekly.
Shiba Inu price dropped to $0.00001457 before pulling back slightly. It is a hair above the $0.00001435 level, which marked a confirmed barrier in May. Shiba Inu appears to be converting this key level into support if price holds at current levels.
The Relative Strength Index, a momentum indicator, could suggest that Shiba Inu price might be ready for a short-term move. The indicator is currently above the 60 level, suggesting an advantage to buyers in the meantime. If buyers emerge at current prices, the barrier remains at $0.000018 and above it at $0.000021. In case of further declines, SHIB might find support near $0.000012.
