FxWirePro: ETH/USD hits fresh 2018 low, bias bearish

Thu, 06 Sep 2018, 12:19 pm UTC

(Refer ETH/USD chart on Trading View)

ETH/USD fell to a fresh 2018 low of 211 levels on Thursday, continuing the downtrend seen since yesterday.

The fall comes amid wider weakness in the cryptocurrency market as a whole. Ethereum price is down by over 28 percent so far this week.

The pair is trading at 225 levels at the time of writing, forming a doji pattern on the daily chart (Coinbase).

On the top side, the pair is likely to face resistance at 235 (1h 21-EMA) and a break above would see it testing 264 (5-DMA)/286 (21-EMA)/300.

On the downside, the pair appears to have found support near 215 (113% extension of 515.88 and 250.28) and further weakness would drag the pair to 200/178/150.

Bias has turned bearish on the daily chart with RSI at oversold levels, stochs biased sharply lower, and MACD on the verge of a bearish crossover. That said, the current doji formation suggests bulls might be trying to sustain the pair’s strength above 200.

Watch out for a break below 200 levels for further bearishness in the pair.

Hello writer, a good journalistic ethics is to reply with a 'Thank you', if someone helps you to correct your 'English' and save you from embracement. First, I saw you only changed a few things after my suggestions. However, it is funny to see you did stick to the word 'levels'. Leave this, even after applying for the newsletters, I am getting only one weekly, which I am less interested in and can read anywhere on google. I will be glad if you send me other newsletters.

Won't the lede be - ETH/USD fell to a fresh 2018 low of $211 on Thursday, continuing its downtrend seen since yesterday. The pair is trading XX percent lower/higher at $225 at the time of writing. And you have written 'levels' so many times - actually if you see it is only one level and not 'levels'.
