Although this is a bearish divergence, it is most indicative of stagnation, which means bulls and bears are not becoming stronger or weaker. The nearest bearish price target is the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level at $217.81. If this level is lost, bears will target $195.7 at the 61.8% Fib level.

Additionally, the RSI is also on the verge of overextension on the 12-hour chart. In April, every time this indicator passed above 70, the digital asset had a significant correction, which adds credence to the outlook above.

On the other hand, to invalidate the bearish outlook, bulls only need to push EGLD toward the previous all-time high as they face practically no resistance ahead. A breakout above $245.8 will take Elrond price toward $277 at the 123.6% Fibonacci level.
