What Can We Expect Out of Monero’s Price?

Short
BITFINEX:XMRUSD   Monero / U.S. Dollar
It’s been a while since we’ve covered the price of Monero, so what better time to do so than now?

Specifically, we will be looking at the $XMR/USD chart pairing after doing a little bit of fundamental analysis first.

Monero Technical Price Analysis on the USD Pairing

To get a better idea of price action, its best that we revisit our charts on the daily resolution (USD pairing).


In the picture above, a clear flat top triangle can be observed.

As you can imagine, this chart pattern generally involves a…flat-top triangle.

There are two major characteristics that validate a trader’s hypothesis that this pattern is under way and those are:

1. The top of the triangle being tested multiple times

and

2. There being a series of ‘higher lows’ that occur in conjunction.

Testing of the Top of the Triangle


In the above chart, we can see this $140-$142 price range being tested multiple times (five in total), thus far.


There is also an ‘internal stack’ of higher highs that can be observed on the chart as well.

They can be found here:


From looking at the picture above, it appears that Monero is in an ascending price channel .

Now, if you look carefully at the original chart above where we identified that this ascending price channel had formed, you can see where the price broke out.


So, from where the price is at this very present moment in time, it makes sense that it could break upward right?

Not always.

As seen in the example graphic posted above, the price can either break below or above the channel.

In this case, Monero is in danger of breaking below the channel for the following reasons:

1. The price is currently trading against the bottom trendline.

2. The volume has been abysmal and lower than average, which means that a surge in volume coupled with a break below the trendline could signal a precipitous decrease in the price.

3. Just about every indicator is bearish for Monero

Let’s review some of the indicators though for Monero first before making any assumptions, shall we?

Moving Average Convergence Divergence ( MACD )


The histogram on the MACD ( daily resolution ) for Monero showed that there was originally a convergence in the two MACD (blue) and the Signal(orange) lines, before eventually the MACD crossed below ( bearish ) the Signal line, and now this ordering has seen increasing divergence (larger and larger red candle bars) for the daily resolution .

This is bearish , plain and simple and a pure confirmation of the major bearish undertones that can be seen in the indicators but not necessarily in the price right now (since its been pure consolidation).

Relative Strength Index(14)


The RSI (14) is showing us a clear bearish trend in the price on the daily resolution and the worst part is that it appears to be nowhere near close to the oversold point, so the RSI can decline much further yet still.

RSI Balance of Power


Similarly, the RSI Balance of Power (custom indicator) also reflects a major increase in sell volume for Monero over the last few days.

Volume Divergence


As we’ve noted in previous studies, when there is negative divergence between the volume and the price during a bear market, that’s a sign that

A) The primary buyers of the market have more than likely already exited their positions.

B) There will be an impending drop in the price the second that the volume picks up.

Zero_n0ncense Reversion Ribbon V2 (Custom Indicator)


This custom indicator works akin to how the MACD does, except it provides a colored fill between the MACD and the signal in order to give a better idea of when a sell signal has been confirmed or not.

What this indicator shows, in essence, is that Monero’s price action has been floundering in recent periods.

Conclusion

All signs are pointing to the conclusion that Monero investors should be expecting a dip in the price soon.

Given the fact that the price is right against that uptrend resistance in the ascending price channel that we identified, the fall could be precipitous in nature.

Below are some price targets for where the author estimates that the price will ‘land’ at.

We are expecting this Triangle to soon meet the Lower High of the 1W Channel Down and break downwards:
