The higher timeframe market structure of SHIB was bullish. However, the losses of the past few days saw it fall below the $.0000238 low from the 6th of March. Additionally, the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level was also breached.

The past two days of trading saw Shiba Inu bounce by 30% from the swing low at $0.0000183 to $0.0000238. However, it was only a short-term boost that filled the lower timeframe price gaps. At press time, more losses appeared imminent.

This was unlikely to lead to a recovery for the memecoin given the sentiment behind Bitcoin.
