• Shiba Inu price is currently consolidating in an indecisive chart pattern before revealing its next intentions.
  • There appears to be little resistance ahead for SHIB, adding credence to the bullish thesis.
  • A spike in buying volume could put the target of a 16% rally on the radar.

Shiba Inu price hints at indecision as a technical chart pattern has formed, suggesting that SHIB may move sideways in the near term before targeting bigger aspirations. A break above the descending trend line may indicate that the canine-themed cryptocurrency is ready for an escape to the upside.

Shiba Inu price pulls back before next ascent

Shiba Inu price has formed a symmetrical triangle pattern on the 4-hour chart, signaling a pullback prior to its next ascent. By connecting the lower highs and the higher lows, two converging trend lines form the chart pattern. 

Moving forward, SHIB may consolidate within the governing technical pattern before a breakout occurs. 

Currently, the only obstacle for Shiba Inu price toward the upside is the topside trend line of the triangle pattern and the 78.6% Fibonacci extension level at $0.00000819. 

Should SHIB see accelerated interest and a spike in buying pressure, Shiba Inu price could slice above the resistance level, which could put the target given by the chart pattern, a rally of 16% to $0.00000954.

Since the prevailing chart pattern suggests that Shiba Inu price would experience a pullback before its next big move, SHIB finds its first line of defense at the 20 four-hour Simple Moving Average (SMA) at $0.00000787. 

Further increase in selling pressure would push Shiba Inu price down to test the lower boundary of the symmetrical triangle pattern at $0.00000757, joined by the 50 four-hour SMA. 

Although this level should act as meaningful support for SHIB, a reversal of fortune could send the token lower to the 38.2% Fibonacci extension level, coinciding with the 100 four-hour SMA at $0.00000691. 

Only an extreme escalation of downward pressure could drive Shiba Inu price lower to the 27.2% Fibonacci extension level at $0.00000656.
