Bob Mason

Ethereum

Ethereum slid by 2.24% on Monday. Reversing a 2.22% gain from Sunday, Ethereum ended the day at $184.65.

A bullish start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning intraday high $190 before hitting reverse.

Ethereum fell short of the first major resistance level at $192.78 before sliding to a late morning low $184.56.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $184.19, Ethereum moved back through to $187 levels going into the afternoon.

Through the 2nd half of the day, the bearish trend continued, however, with Ethereum sliding to a final hour intraday low $183.77.

Ethereum fell through the first major support level at $184.19 before finding support.

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 0.37% to $185.34. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum fall to an early morning low $184.18 before striking a high $185.80.

Ethereum left the major support and resistance levels untested early on

For the day ahead

A move through to $186.20 levels would support a run at the first major resistance level at $188.51.

Ethereum would need the support of the broader market, however, to break out from the morning high $185.80.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Monday’s high $190 should limit any upside.

Failure to move through to $186.20 levels could see Ethereum hit reverse. A fall back through the morning low $184.18 would bring the first major support level at $182.28 into play.

Barring a crypto meltdown, however, Ethereum should steer clear of the second major support level at $179.91.

Major Resistance Level: $188.51

Stellar’s Lumen left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.

For the day ahead

Stellar’s Lumen would need to hold onto $0.080 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $0.08210.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Stellar’s Lumen to break out from Monday’s high $0.081262.

Barring an extended rally through the day, however, Stellar’s Lumen would likely fall short of $0.0820 levels.

Failure to hold onto $0.080 levels could see Stellar’s Lumen slide into the red.

A fall through to sub-$0.0790 levels would bring the first major support level at $0.0770 into play.
