For the day ahead, a move back through the morning high $48.84 to $49 levels would be needed to bring $50 levels and the day’s first major resistance level at $51.69 into play, with sentiment across the broader market needing to materially improve to support a break through to $50 levels later in the day.

Failure to move through the morning high $48.84 to $49 levels could see Monero’s XMR take a bigger hit later in the day, a fall through the morning low $46.93 bringing the first major support level at $46.15 and $45 levels into play before any recovery, the second major support level at $43.51 unlikely to be tested on the day.
