Ethereum

Ethereum fell by 1.31% on Monday. Following on from a 0.42% decline on Sunday, Ethereum ended the day at $148.97.

Another bearish start to the day saw Ethereum slide from an early morning intraday high $151.65 to a mid-morning intraday low $146.82.

Steering clear of the major resistance levels, Ethereum fell through the first major support level at $147.07.

Finding support in the late morning, Ethereum briefly recovered to $150 levels before sliding back through the first major support level.

Off the back of a late afternoon low $146.91, Ethereum recovered to $149 levels before wrapping up the day at $148 levels.

Whilst closing out the day in the red, a move back through the first major support level was key.

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 0.01% to $148.96. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning high $150.0 before falling to a low $148.7.

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

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to move back through to $149.2 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $151.47.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from $150 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally on the day, the first major resistance level and Monday high $151.65 would likely limit any upside.

Failure to move through to $149.20 levels could see Ethereum spend a 4th consecutive day in the red.

A fall through to $148.5 levels would bring the first major support level at $146.64 into play before any recovery.

Barring a crypto meltdown, however, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$145 levels on the day.
