Ethereum Price Support

Ethereum slid by 2.26% on Sunday. Following on from a 1.9% fall on Saturday, Ethereum ended the day at $186.59.

A bullish morning saw Ethereum rally to a midday intraday high $192.76 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $194.98, Ethereum slid to a late intraday low $182.04.

The reversal saw Ethereum fall through the first major support level at $186.41.

Coming within range of the second major support level at $181.93, Ethereum moved back through to $186 levels to limit the downside on the day.

For the week, a 4th day in the red left Ethereum down by 4.19%.

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 3.46% to $193.04. A bullish start to the day saw Ethereum rally from a morning low $186.6 to a high $194.28 before easing back.

Steering clear of the major support levels, Ethereum broke through the first major resistance level at $192.22.

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to hold above the first major resistance level to support a run at the second major resistance level at $197.85.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to hold onto $192 levels.

In the event of a second rally, a move through the second major resistance level would bring $200 levels into play.

Failure to hold above the first major resistance level could see Ethereum give up the early gains.

A fall through $187 levels would bring the first major support level at $181.5 into play.

Barring a crypto meltdown, Ethereum should continue to steer clear of sub-$180 levels.

Stellar’s Lumen would need to hold onto $0.070 levels to support another run at the first major resistance level at $0.0717.

Continued support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Stellar’s Lumen to break out from the early high $0.071308.

In the event of a second rally later in the day, Stellar’s Lumen could break out from Sunday’s high $0.072398.

We would expect the second major resistance level at $0.0741 to limit any upside, however.

Barring a crypto meltdown, we would expect Stellar’s Lumen to steer clear of sub-$0.067 levels on the day.
