Monero’s XMR held above the first major support level at $51.59 before bouncing back through the remainder of the day.

The 2nd half of a day rally saw Monero’s XMR strike a late intraday high $54.68 before easing back. Monero’s XMR broke through the first major resistance level at $53.42 and second major resistance level at $54.23.

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 saw another positive first half of the week, following a 3rd consecutive week in the green last week. The upward momentum has given Monero’s XRM a 19.14% gain year-to-date.

At the time of writing, Monero’s XMR was down by 0.76% to $53.55. Moves in the early hours saw Monero’s XMR fall from a morning high $54.24 to a low $53.46 before steadying. The day’s major support and resistance levels were left untested early on.

For the day ahead,

A move through to $53.60 levels would signal a recovery later in the day. A breakthrough to $54 levels would bring the first major resistance level at $55.05 into play. Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Monero’s XMR to break through to $54 levels.

Failure to move through $53.60 to $54 levels could see Monero’s XMR fall deeper into the red. A pullback through the morning low $53.46 would bring $52 levels into play before any recovery. Barring a crypto meltdown, we would expect sub-$52 support levels to be left untested on the day. The first major support level at $52.49 would likely limit the downside in the event of a sell-off.
