It moved above the resistance of $ 0.4180 and traded with a positive bias. During the upside, it broke the fiber retracement level of 23.6% from the recent decline from the low of $ 0.5180 to $ 0.4011 low.
However, the price suffered strong resistance near the $ 0.4500 area, which was previously a support. There have been a couple of attempts to trade above $ 0.4500 and $ 0.4520, but buyers have failed. Subsequently, the price began to consolidate and is currently trading above the $ 0.4260-80 support.
