IOT/USD: Technical picture
IOT/USD touched the intraday low at $0.2031 and rebounded above a cluster of daily SMA200 and SMA50 at $0.2050. Now this area serves as a local support for the price. Once it is out of the way, the sell-off is likely to gain traction with the next focus on psychological barrier of $0.2000, which is followed by the lower line of the daily Bollinger Band at $0.1958.
The downward-looking RSI on the daily chart implies that the bearish pressure is here to stay with the ultimate downside goal at $0.1800 reinforced by daily SMA100 at $0.1780.
On the upside, we will need to see sustainable move above $0.2200-$0.2220 the upside to gain traction. This area contains the daily opening and a lower boundary of the weekend channel. If it is passed, the upside momentum may gather pace and take the price towards psychological $0.2300 with the middle line of the daily Bollinger Band located right below this barrier.
