Bob Mason

Ethereum

Ethereum rose by 0.91% on Sunday. Following on from a 1.37% gain on Saturday, Ethereum ended the week down 2.65% at $183.88.

Tracking the broader market, Ethereum slid to a late morning intraday low $180.00 before finding support.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $179.74, Ethereum rallied to a late intraday high $186.26.

Ethereum broke through the first major resistance level at $183.96 and the second major resistance level at $185.68.

Late in the day, Ethereum fell back through the major resistance levels to limit the upside on the day.

The extended bearish trend, formed at late April 2018’s swing hi $828.97, remained firmly intact. A reversal from June’s current year high $364.49 back through the 23.6% FIB of $257 reaffirmed the extended bearish trend.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was down by 0.8% to $182.40. A bearish start to the day saw Ethereum fall from an early morning high $183.95 to a low $182.18.

Ethereum left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.

For the day ahead

A move through to $183.40 levels would support a run at the first major resistance level at $186.76.

Ethereum would need the support of the broader market, however, to break out from Sunday’s high $186.26.

Barring a broad-based crypto rebound later in the day, Ethereum would likely fall short of $190 levels.

The second major resistance level at $189.64 would cap any upside on the day.

Failure to move through to $183.40 levels could see Ethereum slide deeper into the red.

A fall through the morning low $182.18 would bring the first major support level at $180.5 into play.

Barring a crypto meltdown, however, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$180 for a 2nd consecutive day.
