Dash recent declines had the digital asset trade lows around $132 before the battered bulls entered and pushed for a pullback. The pullback is not unique to Dash but, just like other altcoins, its price correlates with Bitcoin (BTC) price action. Bitcoin recovered from trading below $6,000 and even came close to $6,600 pulling the entire market along with it, although the effects vary with each asset.

Dash price bullish gains extended above the key resistance at the 61.8% Fib retracement level, with the last swing high of $166.25 and a low of $131.58 at $153.04. There was a considerable struggle at this level where the subtle bear reactions were support above $144. A breakthrough eventually yielded as the price retraced steps above $160 but stalled near $164.00.

The trend turned bearish but the former resistance at 61.8% Fib level came in handy working as support. The bulls are still hanging on to this level while hammering on the stubborn short-term resistance at $156 and $160.00. The critical intraday resistance is at $164 while the upper supply zone also the ultimate resistance in the medium term is highlighted at $169.42. On the other hand, if the 61.8% support is broken, $152.00 will work as the next support area while $136 and $130 are the last resort support lines.
