The $4 mark was a major support level that was lost last week. Filecoin Traded Just Above Another Psychological Level at $3 But Could Face More Bearish Pressure Soon

Core CPI data from the US Labor Department last week saw an upward move to $18k for Bitcoin, but those gains were quickly wiped out. Stock market indices such as the S&P 500 took losses last week and were likely to fall further this week.

Filecoin suffered intense selling pressure and registered huge losses on the price charts.

If Bitcoin can cross the $17,000 mark again, there is a chance of a small rally in the market. However, patience was important. Trading on December 19 would likely shed light on momentum for assets in the week ahead.

A series of Fibonacci retracement and extension levels (yellow) were plotted based on FIL’s move from $6.56 to $4 during the early November crash. From November 10 to December 16, Filecoin formed a range between $4.07 and $4.6.

On Dec. 14, FIL retested the $4.38 region as resistance and fell nearly 30% to hit $3. Over the past few days, volatility and trading volume have been low.

The Fibonacci extension levels presented $2.72 and $2.41 as bearish targets further south. Meanwhile, the 23.6% extension level at $3.39 almost retested as resistance. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) has been strongly bearish and has remained in oversold territory for the past few days.

A bearish divergence near a significantly lower time frame can provide traders with an opportunity to scalp. The Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) has been climbing weakly in recent days, but appears to have dipped below -0.05 again, indicating heavy selling pressure.

A move below USD 3 could send Filecoin down to USD 1.44, the 100% Fibonacci extension level, in the coming weeks based on the aforementioned USD 6.56 drop.

Over the weekend, Open Interest saw a sharp decline, indicating the liquidation of long positions. Sentiment was bearish and the funding rate was also negative this weekend. Liquidation data from Coinalyze showed $4.98 million in long positions being liquidated as Filecoin fell from $4.15 to $3.02 on Dec. 16.

The technical charts showed a bearish bias as momentum and market structure favored the sellers. Futures market participants were also not hoping for a recovery for Filecoin any time soon. If FIL is able to recover $3.4, it could result in a change to shorter time frames. The long-term trend remained strong in favor of the sellers.
