Sei price shows a good sign of recovery after sweeping a key swing low. This move indicates that bulls are vying for higher prices. However, the pullback rally will not be simple due to key hurdles.

Sei price underwent a steep correction of 35% in less than six days, pushing it from $0.874 to $0.562. In the process of this sell-off, SEI swept below a key swing point of $0.585, triggering a short-term spike in buying pressure. As a result, the altcoin inflated by 13% and currently trades at $0.637.
The $0.585 is a key swing low because it is a higher high in the long-standing uptrend that failed to produce a higher high and has now produced a lower low as well. While this development could mean the start of a downtrend, it could also reflect a short squeeze.
Regardless, the bounce in Sei price will encounter two key hurdles at $0.690 and $0.701 after a 10% move. If buyers push higher and flip these resistance levels into a support floor, it will indicate an active short squeeze, and likely propel the altcoin higher.
In such a case, Sei price could attempt to sweep the equal highs buy-side liquidity resting above $0.884. This move would constitute a nearly 40% rally from the current position.

On the other hand, if Sei price recovery rally faces the $0.690 and $0.701 hurdles and fails to overcome them, it would create a lower low. This development is indicative of a potential reversal and a spike in selling pressure that is likely to push SEI lower.
If Sei price produces a decisive four-hour candlestick close below $0.562, it will create a lower low and invalidate the bullish thesis. In such a case, the altcoin will encounter the stable support level at $0.554, which is the midpoint of the 300% rally witnessed between December 18, 2023, and January 3, 2024.
