Ethereum (ETH/USD) retraced some recent losses early in today’s Asian session as the pair traded as high as the 133.99 area after trading as low as the 90.00 area during yesterday’s Asian session. The pair spiked higher to the 148.00 level before moving to its weakest level since December 2018. The humongous sell-off that began around the 253.01 area on 7 March accelerated after major downside price objectives and associated Stops were easily absorbed by ETH/USD Bears, pushing the pair to its weakest level since late December 2018. ETH/USD extended recent losses this week as the pair sharply slumped to the 90.00 area after trading as high as the 196.58 area recently.
Following the pair’s recent depreciation from the 253.01 level, traders are contemplating whether or not the pair can remain above the psychologically-important 100.00 figure following its slump below this area during Friday’s Asian session. Some important technical ranges that traders are closely monitoring include the depreciation from the 199.50 area to the 116.25 area where the 135.90 level represents the 23.6% retracement. Likewise, the 141.76 area represents the 23.6% retracement of the move from 224.34 to 116.25 and the 132.90 area represents the 23.6% retracement of the depreciation from the 302.20 area to the 80.60 area. Downside price objectives that may serve as some technical support include the 95.66 and 80.60 levels.
Price activity is nearest the 50-bar MA (4-hourly) at 197.97 and the 50-bar MA (Hourly) at 142.22.
