How to Buy Monero’s XMR

Monero’s XMR Price Support

Monero’s XMR fell by 0.57% on Monday. Partially reversing a 2.47% gain from Sunday, Monero’s XMR ended the day at $91.17.

A mixed start to the day saw Monero’s XMR strike an early morning intraday high $91.88 before hitting reverse.

Falling well short of the first major resistance level at $93.36, Monero’s XMR fell to a mid-day intraday low $90.08.

The pullback saw Monero’s XMR fall through the first major support level at $90.49 before finding support.

Steering clear of sub-$90 levels, Monero’s XMR managed to bounce back to a $91.7 levels late in the day before easing back. On the day, avoiding a fall through to sub-$90 was key.

For Monero’s XMR, the extended bearish trend formed at late April 2018’s swing hi $298 remained intact. The July fall back through the 23.6% FIB of $99 reaffirmed the extended bearish trend, following 15th December’s swing lo $37.18. Ahead of the pullback, Monero’s XRM had also failed to break through the 38.2% FIB of $137 to take a run at the 62% FIB of $198.

For the bulls, a move back through to $115 levels would be needed to support a run at $140 levels. A move through the 38.2% FIB would see Monero’s XMR form a near-term bullish trend.

At the time of writing, Monero’s XMR was down by 0.52% to $90.70. A bearish start to the day saw Monero’s XMR fall from a morning high $91.64 to a low $90.70.

Monero’s XMR left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.

For the day ahead

Monero’s XMR would need to move back through the morning high $91.64 to take a run at the first major resistance level at $92.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Monero’s XMR to break through to $91 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, Monero’s XMR would likely come up short of $93 levels on the day. Monday’s high $91.88 and the first major resistance level at $92 would likely limit any upside.

Failure to move through the morning high could see Monero’s XMR fall deeper into the red. A fall through the morning low $90.70 would bring the first major support level at $90.21 into play.

Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Monero’s XMR should steer clear of sub-$90 support levels on the day.
