Decentraland had been displaying bearish sentiments since the end of November. MANA was trading on a diligent downward channel. Over a week, it has formed a descending triangle that justified a bearish push in the market.
At press time, the coin was available for $3.12 with an immediate price ceiling of $4.62, and local support rested at $2.54. The coin’s price was seen below the 20-SMA line, indicating that selling pressure took over the market.
The Relative Strength Index struggled to remain afloat over the half-line, but the indicator fell into the negative zone as sellers resurfaced. MACD indicated a strong bearish move after the indicator witnessed a bearish crossover and displayed red histograms at press time.
SAND/USD Four Hour Chart
SAND fell by 7.8% over the last 24 hours. Ever since the coin experienced the massive pullback from the 78.6% Fibonacci level, it has been steadily declining. At the time of writing, the coin was priced at $4.81.
SAND’s price fell below the 20-SMA signaling at a continued bearish run. Immediate resistance for the coin was at 23.6% Fibonacci level at $5.66. On the flip side, the price floor region awaited the coin at $4.02.
The Relative Strength Index seemed to weaken as the coin fell below the half-line into the negative zone, selling pressure mounted in the last 24 hours. The Directional Movement Index preferred the bears as the -DI line crossed over the +DI line indicating an undeniable bearish bias at writing.
ALGO/USD Four Hour Chart
Algorand’s performance has been quite loose as the coin’s price action moved tightly between the descending channel over the past week and a half. Over the last day itself, ALGO brought a loss of 7.2% and was trading at $1.26. A fall from the current level would push ALGO to trade near the $1.19 level, which the coin hasn’t fallen beneath ever since September of this year.
The bulls have snapped the price action, reflecting on the Relative Strength Index as the indicator barely saw the light this month. Sellers have driven the price momentum and continued to do so even at press time.
