Monero short-term price movements largely depend on the overall market. Although the coin was able to occupy the leading place in the privacy sector, its current price recovery was supported by the recovery of Bitcoin and other large players, while the project itself did not have any major announcements or updates in April.
Monero / USD Medium-term price analysis
Monero has a bullish medium-term outlook, with the cryptocurrency attempting to stabilize above its trend defining 200-day moving average.
The daily time frame is showing that the buyers have triggered a large inverted head and shoulders pattern, with the bullish pattern yet to reach its overall upside objective.
The daily time frame is also showing sizeable amounts of bullish MACD price divergence, which extends back towards May 2018.
Traders should note that a bearish head and shoulders pattern could form on the daily time frame if buyers fail to hold onto recent trading gains.

From the fundamental level, the coin will most likely continue to occupy the leading place in the privacy coins niche. Although for the past few months the competition in the sector has increased, Monero has already gained a large community which should help the coin to retain its positions, at least in the medium-term.
Monero is growing increasingly confident above its 200-day moving average, with the presence of bullish patterns on the four-hour and daily time frames highlighting that XMR / USD pair has scope to trade even higher.
The cryptocurrency has significant upside potential if medium-term bulls can sustain the XMR / USD pair at current levels and eventually reverse the bullish MACD divergence on the daily time frame.
