However, the local resistance created by the previous recovery high at $215.50 prevents the coin from an extended upside movement towards $217.00 and $220.00. The vital resistance comes at $222.50. It is created by a combination of the broken trendline and the upper line of the daily Bollinger Band. A sustainable move above this area will signal the return of the upside momentum.
