Filecoin price action has seen strong bullish momentum over the past weeks. After a strong drop at the end of September, a new major swing low was set at the $50 mark. 

From there, bullish momentum returned on the 1st of October as a strong rally to $74 was seen. What followed was a week-long consolidation of around $70, during which a base from which to continue higher was established.

FIL/USD saw another spike higher yesterday, breaking past the $75 resistance and quickly reaching $81, where rejection for further upside was seen overnight. Since then, Filecoin price action has turned bearish, and a slow retracement will likely follow over the next 24 hours.

Filecoin Price Analysis: Conclusion

Filecoin price analysis is bearish today as selling pressure has returned at the $81 new swing high. Therefore, we expect FIL/USD to retrace over the next 24 hours and likely retest the $75 previous high as support.
