    LDO Supply on Exchanges climbed from 5.09% of Lido’s total supply on January 9 to 5.69% on Friday, as seen on Santiment. Despite a surge in LDO Supply on Exchange wallets – normally a bearish sign – Lido price has sustained above the $3 level.

    At the time of writing, Lido price is at around $3.0007 LDO has climbed past the 38.2% Fibonacci Retracement level ($3.050) of LDO’s rally from $1.458 on October 19 to $4.035 on January 11, 2024. LDO price faces resistance at $3.121 and $3.236, in its uptrend.

    A daily candlestick close below the 50% Fibonacci Retracement level at $2.746 could invalidate the bullish thesis for Lido.
