Shiba Inu Signals Bullish Reversal, At Least Short Term: The Bull, Bear Case For The Dogecoin Killer

Zinger Key Points
  • Bullish divergence has started to develop on Shiba Inu's chart.
  • For the divergence to correct, Shiba Inu will need to form a higher low.

Shiba Inu SHIB/USD was trading slightly lower during Thursday’s 24-hour trading session, in tandem with Dogecoin DOGE/USD.

In contrast, Bitcoin and Ethereum were holding flat, propped up by the general market, which saw the S&P 500 trading about 0.8% higher.

Although Shiba Inu and Dogecoin were sliding, a bullish divergence started to form on the crypto’s 24-hour chart.

Bullish divergence occurs when a stock makes a series of lower lows over a specific timeframe, while the relative strength index (RSI) oscillator makes a series of higher lows. Divergence suggests that the bulls are regaining control and can mark an imminent reversal of a downtrend.

Divergences are best used when combined with other signals and patterns on a stock or a crypto’s chart, because the existence of divergence doesn’t indicate when a possible reversal will occur.

The Shiba Inu Chart: Although Shiba Inu formed a new four-month low on Thursday, the crypto’s RSI has been making a series of higher lows, which has caused bullish divergence to develop. In order for the divergence to correct, Shiba Inu will need to print at least a higher low, which will negate the current downtrend.

  • On Thursday, Shiba Inu was working to print a hammer candlestick, which suggests the local bottom may have occurred and the crypto will trade higher on Friday. If that happens, bullish traders want to see the crypto rise above $0.00000917, which would suggest a new uptrend was in the cards and Thursday’s drop was a bear trap.
  • Bearish traders want to see the crypto top out and form a bearish reversal candlestick, such as a doji or shooting star candlestick, under that area. If that happens, a new downtrend will be confirmed.
  • Shiba Inu has resistance above at $0.00000856 and $0.00000975 and support below at $0.00000793 and $0.00000738.
