XMR/USD, daily chart

  • No. 14 coin portrays a potential rounding bottom formation.
  • A break above 97.91 needed to validate the pattern, with the target seen at 151.83 over the next six months.
  • The spot trades above all the key Daily Simple Moving Averages (DMA).

  • All in all, any corrective downside in a bargain-buying opportunity for the XMR bulls.
