Monero’s XMR managed to move back through to $46 levels before a pullback at the end of the day.

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.

In contrast to a number of the majors, Monero’s XMR remained in positive territory year-to-date, with 8th February’s 11.23% rally having pulled Monero’s XMR back into the green.

At the time of writing, Monero’s XMR was up by 1.63% to $46.70. Recovering from an early morning low $45.75, Monero’s XMR rose to a morning high $46.82 before easing. The day’s major support and resistance levels were left untested in the early hours.

For the day ahead, a hold above $46.6 levels through the morning would support a run at $48 levels and the first major resistance level at $48.16. Following Thursday’s reversal, Monero’s XMR would likely struggle to break out from $48 levels, with Thursday’s high $48.83 likely to pin Monero’s XMR back from 50 levels last struck on Wednesday.

Failure to hold above $46.6 levels could see Monero’s XMR give up the morning gains. A fall through to $45 levels and the morning low $45.75 could bring the first major support level at $44.40 into play before any recovery.

Barring a broad-based crypto sell-off, we would expect Monero’s XMR to steer clear sub-$44 support levels through the day.
