Long-term XMR movement

XMR has been moving upwards with strength since the beginning of March. The upward movement culminated with a new all-time high price of $517.60 being reached on May 7. 

While the token has decreased slightly since, it is still trading above the $410 area. Its validation as support is significant, since the level acted as the closing price of the previous all-time high, which was reached in 2018. 

Technical indicators are bullish, supporting the possibility that the token will validate the level as support and continue to increase.

If so, the next resistance area would be found at $743. This is the 1.61 external Fib retracement of the most recent drop.

The XMR/BTC pair is also bullish. 

The token has reclaimed the ₿0.0063 area, which previously acted as support for nearly a year. 

The alleged breakdown is now considered a deviation, with the area likely to act as support once more. 

The MACD, RSI and Stochastic Oscillator support the continuation of the upward movement. This is especially evident by the bullish cross in the Stochastic Oscillator and the RSI cross above 50.

The next closest resistance area is found at ₿0.0112.
