Friday's trading range has been BTC0.00025 (4.33%), that's slightly above the last trading month's daily average range of BTC0.00025.

One bearish candlestick pattern matches today's price action, the Black Candle.
Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 0.00579 (R1), the cryptocurrency closed below it after spiking up to 0.00580 earlier during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance going forward. When prices bounced off a significant resistance level the last time on Tuesday, DASHBTC lost -1.68% on the following trading day.
Crossing below the lower Bollinger Band for the first time since October 16th, prices have shown unusually strong downward momentum in the short-term. This might either indicate a potential selling climax after which prices could head back up towards the mean of the Bollinger Bands at 0.00605 or signal the beginning of a strong momentum breakout leading to even lower prices.
The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.
2019's low at 0.00532 is within reach and we might see further downside momentum should DASH/BTC break out beyond.
