On Monday, Adidas discussed on Twitter the potential of building a so-called “adiVerse” with the support of The Sandbox.

A pullback in testing the 0.382 Fib level at $ 5.45 could cause SAND to return to its next support line at 0.5 Fib near $ 4.45. The same line acted as resistance during SAND’s upside attempts between Nov 18th and 22nd.

Conversely, a sustained move above $ 5.45, accompanied by an increase in volume, could open an opportunity for SAND to test $ 6.70 – at the 0.236 Fib level – as its next upside target.
