Unfortunately, as the buyers could not penetrate the resistance, the coin was compelled to a downward move. The first bearish impulse was at a low of $2.67. The price made a pullback to the resistance at $3.0.

After retesting the resistance, the downward move continued to a low of $1.50. The bulls defended the support at $1.50 as the pair resumed a sideways trend.
