Bitcoin

Bitcoin (BTC/USD) gained additional ground during today’s Asian session, trading as high as the 5430.00 level after trading as high as the 5440.84 area during yesterday’s North American session. Today’s intraday low is 5353.71, right around the 76.4% retracement of the move from 5488.00 to 4901.99 and an area that we spotlighted in our 22 April 2019 analysis. Traders are waiting to see if the pair can remain above the 5403.82 level, an area we have discussed extensively that represents the 61.8% retracement of the 6810.00 – 3128.89 range.

BTC/USD is now at its highest level since 10 April and the current upward bias may soon see the 5488.00 area tested, which would represent a new 2019 high. Above current price activity, upside targets include the 5733.84 area, representing the 38.2% retracement of the move from 9948.12 to 3128.89. Other key upside targets include the 5769.98/ 5808.45/ 5941.26/ 6393.93 levels.

Ethereum

Ethereum (ETH/USD) was generally stronger during today’s Asian session, trading as high as the 173.37 level after trading as high as the 173.65 area during yesterday’s North American session. Interestingly, the pair is working to establish a technical base around the 170.81 level, representing the 50% retracement of the 185.62 – 156.00 range and an area that we have detailed extensively, including in our 22 April 2019 analysis. The 174.31 area is the 61.8% retracement of the same area and the market may soon test this level.

Today’s intraday high of 173.37 is just below the 61.8% retracement of the move from 177.84 to 166.33. The 175.12 area is the 76.4% retracement of this range, but the pair will first need to contend with 174.31. Additional upside targets include the 178.63 and 183.33 areas.

As we have written about extensively, the 168.47 level represents the 61.8% retracement of the 222.78 – 80.60 range and traders are waiting to see where and when ETH/USD will gain a directional bias. Below this area, the 165.25 level represents the 38.2% retracement of the move from 302.20 to 80.60.
