Shiba Inu (SHIB) on verge of gaining another zero, again
SHIB/USD daily chart indicates that the meme coin is in a precarious situation where it could drop below the important $0.00001 barrier. For investors, this level represents not just a psychological barrier but also a technical support that, if breached, might exacerbate the current bearish trend. Following a period of bullish momentum, SHIB is going through a decline that threatens to break a critical support level. The chart shows a gradual descent toward this threshold, highlighting the possibility of a further slide in price. Should SHIB fail to hold this support level, a more severe decline could occur, intensifying the bearish sentiment on the market.
