Bob Mason

Ethereum

Ethereum rose by 2.44% on Sunday. Reversing a 0.90% fall from Saturday, Ethereum ended the week up 5.08% at $184.41.

A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum fall to an early morning intraday low $176.84 before making a move.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $169.43, Ethereum rallied to an early evening intraday high $189.18.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $195.07, Ethereum eased back to $183 levels before closing out the day at $184.

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 up by 0.34% to $185.03. A choppy start to the day saw Ethereum rose to an early morning high $190 before falling to a low $183.15.

While steering clear of the major support levels, Ethereum came up against the first major resistance level at $190.11.

For the day ahead

Ethereum would steer clear of sub-$184 levels to support another run at the first major resistance level at $190.11.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break back through to $190 levels.

Barring an extended rally through the day, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.

Failure to steer clear of sub-$184 levels could see Ethereum pullback through to sub-$180 levels before any recovery.

Barring a broad-based crypto sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of the first major support level at $177.77.

Looking at the Technical Indicators

Major Support Level: $177.77

Major Resistance Level: $190.11

23.6% FIB Retracement Level: $257

For the day ahead

Stellar’s Lumen would need to hold above the first major resistance level at $0.0666 to support another run at $0.068 levels.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Stellar’s Lumen to break back through to $0.067 levels.

Barring an extended rally through the day, Stellar’s Lumen would likely come up short of $0.068 levels.

Failure to hold above the first major resistance level could see Stellar’s Lumen hit reverse. A fall through to sub-$0.06440 levels would bring the first major support level at $0.0629 into play.

Barring a broad-based crypto sell-off, however, Stellar’s Lumen should steer clear of sub-$0.065 levels on the day.
