The coin has formed a descending channel. It is now attempting to move to the upper side of the descending channel. The coin has moved to the 25-day moving average while the Relative Strength Index (RSI) has also risen.
Therefore, there is a likelihood that the coin will move to the upper side of the descending channel at about $1.65. It may then resume the downward trend as bears attempt to retest the lower side of the channel at $1.26.
