REEF daily chart

REEF peaked at $0.026 earlier in the session, and once again retested a resistance line ($0.027) that has been significant since late August.

If the digital asset manages to break through the said line, it can then retest it as support and continue the uptrend with more confidence. Should the token retreat, it still has the 50-day exponential moving average (EMA-50) to seek support.
