Sellers will attempt another correction if the price falls from this overhead zone. If $0.67 breaks, $0.58 is the 61.8% retracement.

Bears will attempt to stop the comeback at $1.12 if the IMX/USDT pair rises. Buyers might push the pair toward $1.30’s strong overhead resistance. Breaking and closing above this level might initiate a fresh upswing. The duo might reach $1.85. If the price falls below $1.12, the bears may not have given up. Sellers will attempt again to push the pair below the 50-day SMA and grab control. If successful, the pair may fall below $0.63.
