Buyers pushed the price above $0.3050 and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $0.3389 high to $0.2983 low.

It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $0.3389 high to $0.2983 low.
If there is an upside break above $0.3150, the price could face sellers near $0.3185 or $0.3200. On the other hand, if the price fails to move above $0.3200, there could be a fresh decline. An initial support is near the $0.3050 level, below which the price may revisit $0.3000.
