YEREVAN (CoinChapter.com) – XMR, the native token of privacy protocol Monero, traded near $210 at the London session opening bell on May 9, after a week of indecisive sideways consolidation. However, the token flashed bearish technicals across various timeframes.

For example, the four-hour chart predicted a tough few sessions for the token, as the price action painted a Descending Triangle. The formation entails a flat support line that prevents breakdowns, and a down-sloping resistance, capping upside attempts.

As a result, since late April, XMR has been bobbing in between the two trendlines. Once the Monero token exhausts the formation, it risks declining below the support line at $200. Moreover, it could decline by the maximal distance between the trendlines, which pins the target price at approximately $156.

If the Monero token loses the $200 support, the next target support stood at approximately $156, backing the bearish forecast from the Falling Triangle on the 4h chart. Moreover, zooming out to the weekly time frame did not reassure XMR bulls.

Unlike the four-hour and daily charts, trend-based oscillators’ weekly price action looked more confident. However, the token remained dependent on the larger market tendencies, which could send the token south, confirming the sell-off fears.
