Shiba Inu (SHIB) Struggles to Break Out —Weekly and Daily Outlooks Diverge

The Shiba Inu (SHIB) price failed to break out from an ascending parallel channel on December 17 and has fallen since.

The weekly and daily time frame readings do not align with each other. There has also been a noticeable decline in tokens burned in the past 24 hours.

Shiba Inu Clears Diagonal Resistance

A look at the weekly time frame price action shows that the SHIB price has been moving upwards since falling to a low of $0.0000054 in June.

In November, the increase caused the SHIB price to break out from a descending resistance trend line that had been in place for 480 days.

Despite the breakout, the SHIB price has not surged. Rather, it trades very close to the descending resistance trend line.

It is also worth noting that only 500,000 tokens were burned in the past 24 hours, a significant decline from the day before.

Readings above 50 and an upward trend indicate that bulls still have an advantage, whereas readings below 50 suggest the opposite.

The RSI moved above 50 (green icon) while the price broke out, legitimizing the upward movement.
