YEREVAN ( – Shiba Inu (SHIB) surged over 40% on Aug. 14, briefly peaking at $0.000018. However, the nonsense rally subsided in the following hours, as SHIB/USD settled at $0.000015 on Monday. Will the decline continue?

SHIB rally short-lived?

In detail, the rally defied a bearish pattern that SHIB traded in since mid-May. As CoinChapter reported, the digital asset printed an “ascending triangle” best visible on the daily chart.

The pattern entails a horizontal resistance that caps the upside attempts and ascending support, preventing breakdowns. However, once the asset exhausts the pattern, traders could anticipate a move in the direction preceding the triangle.

SHIB experienced an over 35% drop on May 11-12. Thus, the possible drawdown after the triangle could be similar, pinning the Shiba Inu target price at $0.0000064. However, the digital asset defied the pattern and rallied against expectations.

Why Shiba-Inu pumped?

Crypto analytical platform Santiment pinned the upside move on whale accumulation that pumped the price. “There have been 433 transactions valued at $100k+, the most in 4 months,” the platform on Aug. 15.

Additionally, during the week of Aug 7-14, the Shiba Inu burn rate was up 824%, creating a supply squeeze and helping the pump. According to the burn tracker ShibBurn, more than 711 million SHIB were sent to dead wallets.
