LEND/USD: The technical picture

LEND’s technical picture sends bearish signals. The price broke below a key support level created by a combination of 4-hour SMA100 at $0.68 and a cluster of  50EMA and 50SMA on a 12-hour chart. If the move is sustained, the sell-off may be extended towards September 2 low at $0.5533 and to the psychological $0.50. 

LEND/USD 4-hour chart

If the price manages to regain ground above the broken support area of $0.68, the recovery may gain traction and bring $0.70 back into focus.  A sustainable move above this area will negate the immediate bearish scenario and allow for an extended upside move towards 4-hour SMA50 at $0.7630. 

In the long-run, the critical support levels come at $0.46 (daily SMA50) and $0.30 (daily SMA100). The RSI on the daily chart points downwards with no signs of an upcoming reversal. which means the price is vulnerable to further sell-off. However, on the intraday timeframes, the coin is clearly oversold and may be ready for a rebound.
