Monero’s technical picture

On the intraday basis, XMR/USD retreated from the recent high reached at $74.69 and settled in the middle of $70.00-$71.00 range. Initial support comes at psychological $70.00, followed by 69.60 ( the middle line of 4-hour Bollinger Band). Once it is out of the way, the sell-off is likely to gain traction with the next focus on $68.30 (a combination of SMA50 (Simple Moving Average) and SMA100 1-hour).

On the upside, a strong resistance awaits the coin on approach to the recent high. It is strengthened by SMA200 and the upper line of 4-hour Bollinger Band on 1-hour chart.
