The recent price decline has brought price action into a support level lower provided by the short term .5 Fibonacci Retracement level (drawn in green) priced at $0.02211. If the bears can constitute to pressure price action lower, we can expect immediate significant support below to be located at the .618 Fibonacci Retracement level priced at $0.0206.

If the bulls can persist further higher then more significant resistance above can be expected at the April 2018 price low at $0.02813.
