The only hope for the bulls is a re-test of the previous support level at $147 if they can defend $130 psychological level. Additionally, the 100-SMA support level at $136 on the daily chart could also serve as a rebound point if bulls can push Monero price above it for a close.

On the 6-hour chart, the TD Sequential indicator has just presented a buy signal and seems to be on the verge of doing the same on the 3-hour chart. The digital asset is down by 15% in the past 24 hours which means a rebound is very likely to happen in the short-term.

DASH buy signals

The In/Out of the Money Around Price (IOMAP) chart seems to give credence to this theory as it shows weaker resistance on the way up compared to the support below. A breakout above the area between $104 and $107 could push DASH towards $120.

However, the IOMAP model also shows that the strongest support area is located between $88 and $92, which means that losing the $100 psychological level could drive its price down to $88.

On the 2-hour chart and the 6-hour chart, the TD Sequential indicator has presented two buy signals. On the 3-hour chart, it’s about to do the same giving a lot of credence to all signals.
