ALGO’s depreciation towards the end of February marked a descending channel (orange). On the three-hour chart, ALGO traded sideways between the 61.8% Fib level ($0.2206) and 100% Fib level ($0.2344) before a bearish breakout on March 7. The drop broke through several lower Fib retracement levels, but the price bounced to $0.1983. At the time of writing, the price was attempting to retest the 23.6% Fib level ($0.2068).

ALGO could face rejection at the 23.6% Fib level and move south before returning from $0.1983. Alternatively, it could drop below $0.1983 and exert additional intense selling pressure.

Therefore, there can be two potential trades on the price action. First, short ALGO if the price is rejected at 23.6% Fib level ($0.2068) or the 7-period EMA ($0.2050). The target would be the 0% Fib level ($0.1983). Second, a break below $0.1983 and the lower limit of the channel could provide an additional opportunity to short $0.1898.

A break above the 7-period EMA would invalidate the above statement and make shorting more risky. However, the uptick could bring near-term bulls gains at the 26-period EMA ($0.2137) or 61.8% Fib level ($0.2206).

In addition, development activity fell sharply, something that could undermine investors’ positive view of the token. In addition, weighted sentiment has remained negative, reflecting the underlying bearish outlook at the time of writing.
