Layer 2 blockchain Arbitrum’s (ARB) price action on the four-hour timeframe delivered a strong hint that buyers could be returning to the spot market after an extended selling period.

Our earlier coverage of ARB brought to the fore shorting opportunities after multiple price rejections. This played out over March with ARB dropping from $2 to $1.38, a 31% decrease.

However, over the past 48 hours, buyers have shown signs of life with a particular chart indicator suggesting that the buying pressure could grow even stronger in the coming days. Do buyers have sufficient buying power to rebound from the deep retracement?

ARB Bulls Strengthen Buy Positions

ARB/USDT on Trading View

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) making a jump from oversold territory to bullish zone over the past two days signalled at a heavy influx of buying pressure for ARB. As of the time of writing, the RSI had a reading of 55, representing a trend shift from bearish to bullish on the four-hour timeframe.

Echoing this trend shift, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) posted a bullish crossover with green histogram bars above zero.

Both signals point to short-term rebound moves by buyers. However, buyers will have to surmount quite a number of sell zones to successfully reach $2 again.

The near-term target for this current bullish rebound will be the $1.6 - $1.7 price zone. This would yield modest returns of between 6% - 13%. Alternatively, a resumption of the selling pressure could see ARB dip to a stronger buy zone at the $1.27 support level.
