Thus, at the time of writing, the APE is trading at $15.7. Meanwhile, the market cap stands at $4.49 billion, up 3.2% in the last 24 hours, according to CMC. Moreover, the price of the APE/BTC pair is up 7% at 0.00403 satoshis in the intraday trading session.
Moving towards the $20-resistance, the APE hit the upper boundary of the Bollinger Bands indicator. Hence, the volatility suddenly increased in the intraday trading session. Similarly, on the previous day, APECoin registered an increase of over 30% in trading volume.
But technical indicators still show downside for APE
In terms of the 4-hours price chart, the RSI is trending down a half-line and the MACD remains below the neutral zone (in the negative zone). Both the indicators are slightly bearish for the short term outlook.
As per the Fibonacci retracement level, the $17.7 mark is acting as the most recent bullish barrier. Above this area, the aggressive bulls may see an opportunity to take the APE price towards the $20 conceptual round level.
Support level- $15 and $10
Resistance level- $20 and $28
