- Shiba Inu (SHIB) has given a strong breakout on the falling wedge pattern hinting at the possibility of another 75% rally from here.
- Shiba Inu’s development with Shibarium’s launch has also fueled the rally in the SHIB cryptocurrency.
The world’s second-largest memecoin Shiba Inu (SHIB) has been showing strong momentum recently in the market with its price surging by 17% in Wednesday’s market bounce. Interestingly, since the beginning of 2022, the SHIB price is up by more than 60% registering its highest price level since November 2022.
Based on the technical chart and the relative strength index (RSI) reading, Shiba Inu has been an excessively bought asset on a daily timeframe. On Wednesday, January 18, the RSI reading jumped to 86, which is 16 points above the overbought threshold of 70.
Usually, an overbought RSI might prompt investors to book profits and unload their positions leading to price correction. Thus, Shiba Inu might drop back to its 300-day moving average of $0.00001120 as represented by the blue line in the above chart. As of press time, SHIB is trading at $0.00001123, just above its 200-day moving average.
But if the SHIB price holds this 200-DMA as support, the SHIB price rally might also continue. Besides, on the weekly chart, there’s a clear formation of a bullish reversal pattern. Dubbed the falling wedge, this pattern builds up with the price trending lower inside a range defined by the descending, converging trendlines.
If the price break above the upper trendline, it can be considered a bullish signal with further price gains ahead. Below is the chart of how the SHIB price action has given a breakout above the “falling Wedge”. As a result, SHIB can further extend the gains toward $0.00002063 by March 2023, which is another 75% from the current levels.
