Taking a look at the chart above, we can see the following:
- After a big fall and a period of consolidation, SHIBA INU has zoomed by over 290% this week alone.
- It is still 50% away from its all-time high but with the huge buying volumes, this can soon be achieved.
- Shiba Inu consolidated in a very tight range for over 5 months, and during this time it made a bullish RSI (Relative Strength Index) divergence (Divergence indicates that the current price trend is flagging, which provides insight into whether it’s time to make a move to buy or sell that particular stock).
Is it too late to buy SHIB?
Moving on to the short-term chart above we can observe the following.
- Shiba price is now moving in a strong upward channel as on Thursday and a short position should be avoided until the lower trendline is broken with high selling volumes.
- A bearish RSI divergence can be seen, this is indicating that Shiba Inu will test the lower trend line soon.
Finally, the one-day chart above offers some form of confirmation that Shiba is overbought.
- This week the RSI is extremely high at 95, this is showing that is overbought at a very high level and people can start booking their profits very soon.
- It has taken rejection from the top and a long wick can now be seen in the daily candle of Thursday which shows that it may give a small pullback soon.
A long entry and buying SHIB now is very risky. Investors should wait for a pullback as the RSI indicates the coin is extremely overbought. Logic dictates a short entry can be taken, however, coins like Shiba are wildly unpredictable and it wouldn’t surprise investors if a new all-time high is reached soon.
