Shiba Inu (SHIB) on Verge of Major Price Move; Here's Why
Shiba Inu (SHIB) saw significant "buying activity" within a relatively short time. As seen on the 4-hour chart, Shiba Inu printed a massive green candle following the liftoff from the MA 50 at $0.0000122.
However, the token could not immediately burst through the overhead barrier at $0.00001333 and reversed back below the 4-hour MA 200 at $0.00001295. SHIB is currently trading at $0.0000126 while attempting a decisive break above this key level. At the time of publication, SHIB was just up 3% in the last 24 hours, per CoinMarketCap data.
If bulls succeed beyond the 4-hour MA 200 and then the current $0.00001344 barrier, SHIB will most likely make a run toward the next resistance on the chart, located almost 17% above the current price level at $0.0000148. This level may again act as a stiff hurdle, but if bulls overcome it, the rally could gain momentum to $0.000018.

The RSI remains near the 50 neutral levels, which suggests that SHIB might engage in range trading before the next major move. That said, a decisive break above these key levels might be a major catalyst for Shiba Inu's next move. Conversely, if the price breaks below $0.000012, the token could find support next at $0.000010.
Per WhaleStats data, Shiba Inu was among the top 10 assets in trading volume for the 2,000 biggest ETH whales in the last 24 hours.
