The 0.06 mBTC level has recently served as a dependable level of support. However, the current trajectory is showing signs that this level is giving way. Each support point is effectively a composition of points within a support band. Nxt has been challenging successively lower points within this band of 0.06-0.068 mBTC. During the past 36h, it has dwelled toward the bottom of this range. In addition, previous visitations to the support level have taken the form of gradualized pivot points of reversal, typically traded for 24h or more.
Further short-term declines to 0.054-0.057 mBTC appear possible.
