For Monero’s XMR, the extended bearish trend formed at late April 2018’s swing hi $298 remained intact. The July fall back through the 23.6% FIB of $99, reaffirmed the extended bearish trend, following 15th December’s swing lo $37.18. Ahead of the pullback, Monero’s XRM had also failed to break through the 38.2% FIB of $137 to take a run at the 62% FIB of $198.

For the bulls, a move back through to $115 levels would be needed to support a run at $140 levels. A move through the 38.2% FIB would see Monero’s XMR form a near-term bullish trend.

At the time of writing, Monero’s XMR was down by 2.64% to $79.04. A bearish start to the day saw Monero’s XMR fall from a morning high $80.11 to a low $78.86.

Falling well short of the major resistance levels, Monero’s XMR slid through the first major support level at $79.79.

For the day ahead

A move back through the morning high $80.11 to $81.7 levels would signal a run at the first major resistance level at $83.07.

Monero’s XMR would need the support of the broader market, however, to break out from $80 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level at $83.07 and Thursday’s high $83.56 should limit any upside.

Failure to move through the morning high to $81.7 levels could see Monero’s XMR struggle through the day.

A fall back through the morning low $78.86 would bring the second major support level at $78.39 into play before any recovery.

Barring a crypto meltdown, the second major support level at $78.39 should limit any downside on the day.
