The price is now testing the 61.8% fib retracement level of the recent crash, from the high of $ 0.3255 to the low of $ 0.2400. There is strong resistance on the upside near the $ 0.3000 level. A successful close above $ 0.3000 could open the door to further profits.
The next major resistance is near the $ 0.3120 level, above which the price is expected to rise toward the $ 0.3200 and $ 0.3250 levels in upcoming sessions.
