  • Shiba Inu has recovered 11% in a week.

  • Shiba Inu token has witnessed increased activity amid improving altcoin sentiment.

  • SHIB is still bearish and could remain vulnerable to $0.0000075.

Shiba Inu (SHIB/USD) large investors are defiantly transacting the token against the prolonged bear market. November 28 WhaleStats data showed that SHIB was among the top 10 cryptocurrencies by trading volume among the biggest Ethereum whales. IntoTheBlock data also showed that large transactions on the Shiba Inu network had increased by 141% in the last 24 hours.

A spike in trading volumes and transactions indicates traders are buying or selling SHIB aggressively. However, a price outlook of SHIB shows the cryptocurrency has gained an intraday of 2.24% and 11% in a week. It suggests that large investors could, in fact, be buying the meme cryptocurrency.

The whale activity on Shiba Inu comes when Santiment data shows growing interest in altcoins. According to the data, Euphoric sentiment has hit a 3-month high for altcoins. As CoinJournal reported, Dogecoin was leading the surge on Musk news. The gains in SHIB reflect the improved sentiment, with the meme cryptocurrency known to follow DOGE moves.

SHIB price outlook and analysis amid weekly recoveries

SHIB/USD Chart by TradingView

On the technical side, the SHIB price is still in a bear market. The MACD indicator has initiated a bullish crossover but remains bearish. The RSI reading of 45 is well below the midpoint.

Besides, recent recoveries have taken SHIB to slightly above $0.000009. However, bulls are yet to recapture important levels. We consider a bearish view for SHIB in the short term.

When to buy SHIB?

SHIB price remains vulnerable as long as buyers do not recapture $0.000012. The level is the established resistance and a focal point for the SHIB trend pivot.

Even as the price recovers slightly, the upside is weak, meaning sellers could try to push the token lower again. In a bear scenario, SHIB could find support at $0.0000075. This is the same low as June before the cryptocurrency initiated a recovery.

  • Bitcoin has climbed roughly 40% since the start of 2023.

Bitcoin has now surpassed the key $23,000 level but Katie Stockton of Fairlead Strategies continues to recommend caution as the recent rally could reverse just as easily.

Stockton defends her stance on CNBC

Year-to-date, the first ever decentralised cryptocurrency has gained about 40% – a strength she says is an opportunity for investors to pull out.

Reiterating her “neutral” stance on Bitcoin, Stockton said this week on CNBC’s “Squawk Box”:

When you see such strong, steep rallies, they’re more characteristic of countertrend moves. At one point, we had 14 consecutive up days this month for BTC. So, we’re sceptical to its sustainability and see it as countertrend.

The upcoming week is a crucial one for Bitcoin because of the Fed’s announcement. The CME FedWatch Tool currently signals a more than 98% probability of a 25 basis points hike this time.

Bitcoin has broken above its 200-day MA

Also on Sunday, a top trader and analyst, Peter Brandt warned of a near-term pullback in BTC. Others, including Michael van de Poppe and Credible Crypto have a similar opinion as well.

Interestingly, Bitcoin is now trading meaningfully above its 200-day Moving Average. Still, Katie Stockton said:

This has happened before and it proved to be a false breakout. So, we’re not convinced we have a breakout here. But it’s an incremental positive. We hope this manifests in our longer-term indicators which still very much point lower.

She’s not particularly constructive either on the benchmark S&P index that’s up more than 6.0% for the year at writing.
