Finding support from the broader market, Monero’s XMR rallied to an early afternoon intraday high $50.14.

For Monero’s XMR, the extended bearish trend formed at late April’s swing hi $298 remained firmly intact. Monero’s XMR continued to fall well short of the 23.6% FIB Retracement Level of $99, following 15th December’s swing lo $37.18.

For the bulls, Monero’s XMR is targeting a 3rd consecutive week in the green. The gains have been minor, however, barely reversing an early January sell-off.

At the time of writing, Monero’s XMR was up by 2.01% to $50.70.  Choppy start to the day saw Monero’s XMR fall to an early morning low $49.8 before rallying to a morning high $50.72.

The moves through the early morning saw Monero’s XMR break through the first major resistance level at $50.61. The day’s major support levels were left untested early on in the day.

For the day ahead,

A hold above the first major resistance level at $50.61 would support a run at $51 levels later in the day. Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Monero’s XMR to take a run at the second major resistance level at $51.52. In the event of a broad-based crypto rally, $52 levels could come into play before any pullback.

Failure to hold above the first major resistance level could see Monero’s XMR hit reverse later in the day. A fall through to $49 levels would be likely before any recovery. Barring a broad-based crypto sell-off, we would expect Monero’s XMR to steer clear of the first major support level at $48.32. In the event of a sell-off, Monero’s XMR could fall through to sub-$48 levels before any recovery.
