- XMR / USD is in a narrow range, well supported by the DMA50.
- Hackers like to hijack other people's devices on my Monero.
Monero (XMR) is changing hands to $ 111.65, the minimum reached this week $ 103.33. The tenth largest currency by market capitalization has not changed since yesterday due to the decline in volatility.

On the daily chart, XMR / USD is currently supported by DMA50 at $ 105.68. The currency has been trading above this level since September 13th. The upside is limited by DMA100 currently to $ 117.70. The "Hammer" formation that appeared on September 12 was not able to translate into a long recovery, which could indicate that the bullish momentum has vanished. A steady growth above DMA100 and $ 120.00 will reinvigorate the bulls and pave the way to the recent recovery maximum at $ 141.92.
On the downside, a sustainable move below $ 105.68 will cause more sell-offs to $ 100 psychological and the recent low to $ 96.54.
