  • There is still a level of uncertainty surrounding the Monero project

The price of Monero (XRM) has advanced from $61 above $105 in less than three months and the current price stands around $88. Monero is still far away from the XRM price predictions but if the price jumps again above $100 that could be a very good opportunity for the short-term traders.

A very good team stands behind this project, the fundamentals of this cryptocurrency are steadily improving but there’s still a level of uncertainty surrounding the project. We can also not forget that regulations on the cryptocurrency market can actually be a threat to this cryptocurrency.

According to the latest news, the Internal Revenue Service is seeking a tool that can be used to trace privacy coins like Monero. The IRS is offering up to $500,000 to contractors that provide a proof-of-concept that can crack the security on Monero.

Investors in Monero should have in mind that this is a still very risky cryptocurrency but now could be a good time to trade Monero (XRM). It is also important to mention that the price of Monero is correlated with the price of Bitcoin and investors in this cryptocurrency should also have Bitcoin on their “watch list”. Bitcoin has found strong support above $10 000 and some analysts believe that BTC may start trading higher in the upcoming days which is positive for Monero.

On this chart, I marked important resistance and support levels. The important support levels are $80 and $70, $100 and $110 represent the resistance levels. If the price jumps above $100 it would be a signal to buy this cryptocurrency and we have the open way to $110.

Rising above $110 supports the continuation of the bullish trend and the next price target could be located around $130. On the other side, if the price falls below $80 it would be a “sell” signal and we have the open way to $70.
