Dash Price Resistance
Recently, there was a decline below $180 in Dash price against the US Dollar. The price even traded below the $170 level and formed a low at $169. Later, a recovery wave was initiated, and the price was able to move back above the $175 level. However, the same broken support at $180 is currently acting as a barrier for buyers. There is also a short-term bearish trend line forming with resistance at $180 on the hourly chart of DASH/USD.
Furthermore, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $218 high to $169 low is near $180.50. Lastly, the $180 resistance also coincides with the 100 hourly simple moving average. All in all, the $180 resistance is a crucial level for more gains in the near term. If buyers succeed in clearing $180, the next stop could be $188. The $188 level was also a support earlier and now it may act as a resistance.
The 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $218 high to $169 low is also around $188. So, even if there is a break above $180, gains could be limited by $188.
