Bitcoin

Bitcoin (BTC/USD) encountered some profit-taking early in the Asian session after being lifted to the 8315.00 area late in yesterday’s North American session, just below the 76.4% retracement of the move from 9948.12 to 3128.89. The pair then traded as low as the 7800.00 figure early in the Asian session. Both 8186 and 8210 represented short-term upside price objectives following yesterday’s price activity and Stops were elected above both of those areas, pushing the pair close to fresh multi-month highs and to levels that preceded the massive sell-off late last week.

Chartists are again focusing on important levels of technical Resistance and upside price objectives. The 8488.00 figure represents a relative high dating to July 2018 and the 9948.12 area represents a relative high dating to May 2018. Upside price objectives related to short-term price activity this weekend include 8406.26/ 8505.94/ 8678.17. Below current price activity, traders are eyeing the 50-bar MA (4-hourly), currently around 7647.97 followed by 7709.26 and 7580.79.

On a 60-minute chart, the 50-bar, 100-bar, and 200-bar MAs have converged and are trading within US$ 25.00 of each other.

Price activity is nearest the 50-bar MA (4-hourly) at 7647.97 and the 100-bar MA (Hourly) at 7647.12.

Technical Support is expected around 7548.79/7204.87/ 6830.99 with Stops expected below.

Ethereum (ETH/USD) depreciated early in today’s Asian session, receding to the 245.88 level after peaking around the 264.77 area during yesterday’s North American session. Today’s intraday low is right around the 38.2% retracement of the move from 281.77 to 222.88. Additional selling pressure could see the 236.78 area challenged, representing the 23.6% retracement of the same range. Just below that area, the 234.21 area is important with the 230.98, 219.53, and 215.29 levels of technical significance below there.
