The second major resistance level at $70.84 pinned Monero’s XMR back on the day, with Monero’s XMR pulling back through to $68 levels late in the day.

Despite the pullback to sub-$69 levels late on, Monero’s XMR managed to buck the trend from across the broader market. Out of the top 20, only Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash SV joined Monero’s XMR in the green on 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.

For the day ahead,

A move through to $69.40 levels would support another run at $70 levels and the first major resistance level at $70.74.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Monero’s XMR to take a run on Tuesday’s high $71.17, however.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, Monero’s XMR will likely come up short of the second major resistance level at $72.57.

Failure to move through to $69.40 levels could see Monero’s XMR struggle later in the day. A fall through the morning low $68.19 would bring the first major support level at $67.50 into play.

Barring a crypto meltdown, Monero’s XMR would likely steer clear of sub-$67 support levels on the day.
