Ethereum

Ethereum rose by 0.79% on Sunday. Reversing a 0.6% decline from Saturday, Ethereum ended the week up by 6.46% to $181.18.

A bullish start to the day saw Ethereum rally from an early morning low $178.71 to a late afternoon intraday high $184.75.

Steering clear of the major support levels, Ethereum came up against the first major resistance level at $184.06.

Hitting reverse late in the day, Ethereum fell back to a late intraday low $178.63 before finding support.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $176.46, Ethereum bounced back to $181 levels to end the day in the green.

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 1.19% to $183.33. Bullish through the early morning, Ethereum rallied from an early low $180.52 to a morning high $184.24.

Steering clear of the major support levels, Ethereum came within range of the first major resistance level at $184.41.

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to hold onto $183 levels to support another run at the first major resistance level at $184.41.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to take a run at Sunday’s high $184.75.

Barring an extended crypto rally through the day, Ethereum would likely come up short of $190 levels. The second major resistance level at $187.64 would limit any upside on the day.

Failure to hold onto $183 levels could see Ethereum hit reverse. A fall through to $181.50 levels would bring the first major support level at $178.29 into play before any recovery.

Barring a broad-based crypto sell-off, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$178 levels for a 2nd consecutive day.

Stellar’s Lumen

Stellar’s Lumen came within range of the third major resistance level at $0.0629 before hitting reverse.

The reversal saw Stellar’s Lumen fall through the major resistance levels to a late intraday low $0.06094 before finding support.

Stellar’s Lumen moved back through to $0.0610 levels to wrap up the day in the green.

The extended bearish trend remained firmly intact, reaffirmed by 24th September’s new swing lo $0.051614. Stellar’s Lumen continued to fall short of the 23.6% FIB of $0.1310 following a pullback from $0.13 levels in late June.

For the day ahead

Stellar’s Lumen would need to hold above the second major resistance level to support further upside on the day.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Stellar’s Lumen to break through to $0.0640 levels.

In the event of an extended rally through the day, the third major resistance level at $0.0650 would come into play.

Failure to hold above the second major resistance level could see Stellar’s Lumen hit reverse.

A fall through the first major resistance level at $0.0624 to sub-$0.06150 levels would bring the first major support level at $0.06070 into play.

Barring a crypto meltdown, however, Stellar’s Lumen should steer well clear of the second major support level at $0.0600.
