Despite recent fluctuations, LDO’s market structure on the four-hour chart was on an uptrend momentum, as illustrated by the ascending channel (orange). The $2.50 – $2.77 supply zone (red) has been a critical price ceiling since late March. Besides, the supply zone could also be considered to have a bearish order block (OB) on the four-hour chart, formed on 18 March. So far, the supply zone has inflicted three price rejections since late March.

Therefore investors should tread carefully when considering their positions regarding this cryptocurrency .
