Can the 38.2% Fib level hold?
FIL doubled in value in mid-February thanks to its planned Filecoin Virtual Machine (FVM) in March. It rose from $5 to $10 but was rejected after Bitcoin [BTC] lost hold of the $25K.
The drop has hit a key support level at 38.2% Fib level ($6.519). The level was a crucial resistance level in 2022, particularly in the second half of August, September, and November. As such, it could provide bulls an entry position if it remains steady.
Bulls can target the 61.8% Fib level ($7.662) or the bearish order block at the 78.6% Fib level ($8.5). The uptrend could be accelerated if BTC breaks above $23.35K and surges upwards. But bulls could wait for a pullback to retest the 38.2% Fib level to confirm the uptrend before making moves.
Alternatively, short-sellers can sell high, just below the 38.2% Fib level ($6.519), buy back cheaply if FIL drops at the 23.6% Fib level ($5.811), and pocket the difference. However, short-sellers can enjoy this extra opportunity if FIL closes below 38.2% and confirms a further downtrend.
The RSI declined but showed signs of pivot near the equilibrium. However, there was a looming death cross, as shown by the MACD (moving average convergence divergence), which could complicate matters for bulls if it occurs.

Sentiment dropped to a neutral level, but demand improved
According to Santiment, FIL’s weighted sentiment hit a high positive level in mid-February following the planned Filecoin Virtual Machine (FVM) announcement.
It shows the news got positive social interactions, improving investors’ confidence in the token. Similarly, the increased Funding Rate shows that demand for the token rose in the same period.
However, at the time of writing, sentiment had declined close to the neutral level, partly because of the prevailing macroeconomic headwinds following increased inflation in January.
Nevertheless, FIL’s demand saw slight improvement at press time and could boost recovery efforts if the support stops the plunge.
