Apecoin price shows bearish signals to the end of July. A sweep the lows event targeting $4.42 is in the cards
ApeCoin price faces resistance
Since August 1, the APE price has lost 37% of its market value. In recent trading hours, the ApeCoin price was rejected at the $5 zone from the 8-day simple moving average. The SMA's denial of entrance to prices higher prompts the idea that buyers want a better discount.
ApecCoin price currently auctions at $4.84. The Volume Profile Indicator is relatively sparse during today's trading hours, reaffirming the bearish idea. A breach of the $4.70 barrier could induce sidelined investors to jump in for a quick short, targeting the July 15 swing low at $4.42. Such a decline would result in a further 11% decline from the current ApeCoin price.
