Alternative crypto-currency Dash has been trading right above an important support level all month. Ether on the other hand had a wild ride, first plunging to a new low of 0.00775, only to rally back up to 0.01152.
Ether Bounces From Lows
Ether had an interesting two weeks since our last update. The crypto initially continued the trend lower, moving below the 0.01 figure on December 2nd. Then a hack of a prominent ETH investor sent prices crashing and on December 6th a low of 0.00775 was hit. From here we got a bit of a reversal, with ETH/BTC rallying to 0.01152, almost matching the month’s high at 0.01166.
One coin is selling for 0.01045 right now. Despite the gains, ETH/BTC is still technically in a downtrend. To end it, a decisive break above the 0.01152 swing high is needed. Notable resistance above here can be found at the October lows of 0.01332. A break of this level could shift the trend to the upside. Higher still we have more levels at 0.01382 swing high followed by the 0.015 round figure.
On the lower end we have support at the 0.01 round level followed by this month’s swing low at 0.00775. The semi-round figure at 0.05 may offer some support as well.
Dash Trading at Support
Dash has been trading near the important support level of 0.0111 during all of December. Earlier this month we traded as low as 0.01103 but this move lower was quickly repelled so it can’t be classified as a break of the level. Like we always say, we’re looking for a decisive break, not a short or shallow move below the level.
We’re now quoted at 0.01188 BTC per coin. As you can see in the daily chart above, prices are still trading in a range (marked with the yellow rectangle). On the lower end, we have now formed a triple bottom pattern, with lows on October 29th, November 20th and most recently, December 2nd. A decisive break below the low at 0.011 would invalidate the pattern and restart the downtrend. Close to here, we have support at the 0.01 round figure.
On the other end, a breakout above this month’s high at 0.01251 would confirm the triple bottom formation and potentially start a rally in prices. Above here we find several resistance levels at 0.014 and the 0.01489 swing high, which is closely followed by the round figure at 0.015. We have more resistance above here at the September lows of 0.01741 BTC.
