Lido Finance: Developments and increase in volumes

Although there were decreases, this was not evident in Lido’s development activity.

Of the price and what’s to come

As for the price, LDO was trading at $1.10, according to CoinMarketCap. Although this was a minimal increase from the past 24 hours, the four-hour chart showed that there could be some upside potential.

Indeed, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) showed tentative buying power at 40.66. So the bearish experience could turn bullish, but there was no strong signal to mean the same.

However, the moving average convergence divergence (MACD) indicated a battle for buying and selling strength. At press time, the MACD showed that the bearish momentum is not completely gone.

Indeed, the buying force (blue) and the sellers (red) were almost at the same point. Nevertheless, the MACD seemed to reflect more of a decline than a slight rise.

As for its direction, it might be difficult for LDO to break out of its bearish state. This was due to the position of the Directional Movement Index (DMI). At press time, the positive (green) DMI was 15.05 and the negative (red) DMI was 27.21. As this was not a close call, LDO may lose hold of the $1.10 region

Additionally, the Average Directional Index (ADX) position showed upward directional strength. With the ADX (yellow) at 26:35, there was more support for LDO to succumb to red control.
