Looking at the 2-hours chart of XMR/USD, the pair traded as low as $63.62 and jumped back above the $67.00 resistance plus the 25 simple moving average (2-hours).
The crypto market added more than $5 billion in the past three sessions, pushing bitcoin, Ethereum, ripple, cardano, bitcoin cash, EOS and others higher. Monero too gained traction and spiked above the $70.00 level.
However, the bulls failed to retain strength and the price retreated after setting a high at $70.58. It dipped below the $69.00 level and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $63.62 low to $70.58 high.
However, there is a strong support on the downside near the $67.00 level. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $63.62 low to $70.58 high is also close to the $67.00 level. Therefore, dips towards the $67.00 level remains well supported and the price is likely to bounce back.
On the upside, there is a key barrier forming near $70.00-70.50. Besides, there is a key bearish trend line formed with resistance near the $70.00 level. A successful close above the trend line and $70.50 might push XMR price towards the $72.00 and $72.90 resistance levels.
The overall price action is positive and it seems like monero could make an attempt to climb above the $70.00 and $72.00 resistance levels in the near term.
