    On intraday charts, IOT/USD is testing the lower boundary of 1-hour Bollinger Band (currently at $0.3030). Once it is cleared, psychological $0.3000 will come into focus followed by the barrier created by SMA50 (1-hour) at $0.2950.

    Considering the downward-looking intraday RSI the further bearish correction looks highly likely, though, the sell-off may be limited by $0.2900-$0.2870 congestion zone strengthened by SMA200 (1-hour).  

    On the upside, a sustainable move above $0.3140 (middle line of 1-hour Bollinger Band) is needed to mitigate the bearish pressure and bring $0.3200 back into focus. The next barrier comes at $0.3230 (lower line of 1-hour Bollinger Band), followed by the recent high at $0.3290.
