The price of SAND is attempting to break above the 9-day and 20-day EMA lines at press time. Should this happen, the SAND’s price will make a move to the next key resistance level at around $0.6914.

A bullish flag is on the verge of triggering as the daily RSI line is about to cross above the RSI SMA line. Should this happen the SAND’s price may have the necessary support to break above the 9 and 20 EMA lines.

Traders will want to keep an eye on the 9 and 20 EMA in the next 24 hours. Should the shorter EMA cross above the longer EMA then SAND’s price will enter into a short-term bullish cycle and will look to target $0.7550.
