Observing the 4-hour Monero technical indicators on our price analysis, the MACD histogram has just moved from short green bars to short red bars – therefore indicating a change of momentum to the advantage of the bears. The reduced size of the bars indicates the bearish momentum could be short-term and insufficient to pull the price below the intraday low. 

Monero Relative Strength Index (RSI) is leaning against a bearish market and points upwards at the 38 index level. Meanwhile, chances exist of the RSI shifting into the neutral side where the bulls will need to gain more support from the market to counter any downswings and trigger a solid uptrend as per Monero price analysis.

Selling pressure is highest at the $300 mark and has down slopped the resistance zone to $295 and $305. The press time price is already a few percentages down from the daily high and the balance of power indicator is showing the bears have better advantage against the bulls.

Closely on the 4-hour candlesticks, the price of XMR/USD is in touching proximity with the middle line of the Bollinger bands – (also termed as the Simple Moving average) – an indication of bearish momentum. The bull’s only change depends on sustaining a breakout beyond the $305 and reaching the $310 point. At which point, more buyers will enter the market and solidify a bullish market structure.

Monero Price Analysis: Conclusion
