If the sellers break beneath $0.236, the first level of support lies at $0.228 (.618 Fib). Beneath this, support lies at $0.22, $0.216 (downside 1.272 Fib Extension), and $0.206 (downside 1.414 Fib Extension).
On the other side, the first level of resistance lies at $0.244 (100-days EMA). This is followed by resistance at $0.25, $0.264, and $0.27.
The RSI is starting to make its way back toward the mid-line, which shows that the bearish momentum is starting to fade. Additionally, the Stochastic RSI is primed for a bullish crossover signal that could send the market higher when it appears.
