Shiba Inu (SHIB) Continues to Trade Below Crucial MA’s on the 6-hour chart
In terms of price action, Shiba Inu (SHIB) is a relatively new coin in the crypto markets. As a result, its price has not yet generated enough data for the daily SHIB/USDT to provide adequate clues to its next course of action.
However, the 6-hour SHIB/USDT chart below hints at a bearish scenario as the token is currently trading below the 50,100 and 200 moving averages.
However, the 6-hour MACD, RSI and MFI hint of an oversold scenario for Shiba Inu (SHIB). Therefore, there is a slight probability of SHIB attempting to erase some of its losses since the beginning of the month.
As with all altcoins such as Shiba Inu, keeping an eye out for any sudden volatility by Bitcoin is advised when trading SHIB on the various derivatives platforms.
