As the whole crypto market shows signs of slow recovery, Shiba Inu gained 8% in an hour, according to data from CoinMarketCap. The sudden spike also created a big green candle in the hourly chart.
However, the gain was short-lived, as SHIB is now trading at $0.0000138, a 3.36% increase in the last 24 hours. The whole market rebound seems to be slowly fading away as the majority of the crypto market seems to have slumped and is trading in the red.
At the time of writing, only ETH, BNB, and Shiba Inu seem to be trading in the green.

Shiba Inu had a decent month as compared to other major cryptos in the market. SHIB has gained 28.3% in the last 30 days and 11.5% in the last 14 days. In terms of performance in the last 7 days, SHIB has lost 6.7%.
Data from IntoTheBlock shows that Shiba Inu stands at the lowest 30-day correlation with Bitcoin at 17%. This might be a sign of a decoupling from the Bitcoin price trend, which would mean that the price movement of SHIB is less likely to be driven by the market as a whole.
