As a result, there was another bearish wave and the price broke the $0.2150 support level. The decline was such that the price even declined below the $0.2140 support.
A new monthly low is formed near the $0.2125 level and the price is still following a downtrend. An immediate resistance is near the $0.2140 level. Besides, it is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.2185 high to $0.2125 low.
