Its value against the USD surged over 8% after Monday and Tuesday’s selloff. Versus Bitcoin, Dash started gaining a bullish momentum earlier, on Tuesday.

However, it may still be too soon to celebrate. That’s partly because the future Ichimoku cloud remains bearish. Also, DASH/BTC needs to pierce through the cloud and break above it before we can confirm the crypto has bottomed out. Furthermore, even before the most recent cryptocurrency selloff started last week, DASH/BTC was consolidating below the 23% Fibonacci retracement level of 0.030. Keep in mind that for Dash coin value to continue in an uptrend, Bitcoin needs to continue getting weaker against the DASH token.
