COMP/USD: The technical picture

COMP/USD retested the recent recovery high of $268.63 from August 12 but failed to settle above this resistance area, which is regarded as a short-term bearish signal. The coin is vulnerable to the downside correction towards the local support created by a psychological $200.00. This barrier is reinforced by the middle line of the 4-hour Bollinger Band and 4-hour SMA100 located below this area. Once it is out of the way, the sell-off may be extended to %158.00-$160.00 (the lower boundary of the recent consolidation channel).

The RSI on the intraday charts stays on the overbought territory, though it has already reversed to the downside.

However, the bearish scenario will be invalidated if the price settles above $268.00. Once this resistance is turned into a new support, the upside momentum will statr gaining traction with the next focus on $300.00-$310.00.
