Dash Price Trend Line Break

In the last analysis, we saw how there was a rise in Dash price towards the $80 level against the US Dollar. Later, the price faced sellers and started a minor downside move. It looks like it failed to break the $80 level, and may move down further. It has already cleared the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $60.50 low to $80.65 high. It is the first sign of weakness, as the price starts a downside move below $78.

The second bearish sign is a close below the 100 hourly simple moving average at $77. Third, there is a break below a bullish trend line with support at $77 on the hourly chart of DASH/USD. These signs suggest that the price may move down further towards $70. An initial support on the downside is around the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $60.50 low to $80.65 high at $72.91.

Dash Price Technical Analysis

However, I think the most important support is near $70.50, which is a pivot area. If you are looking to buy, then wait for a move towards $70 or a close back above the $78 level.

Looking at the indicators:

Hourly MACD – The MACD for DASH/USD is now moving into the bearish zone.

Hourly RSI – The RSI for DASH/USD is heading towards the 30 level, and bearish.

Intraday Support Level – $70

Intraday Resistance Level – $78
