Ether Downtrend Ends

The short-lived downtrend in ETH is over after prices decisively broke the previous support turned resistance at 0.03712 BTC. Yesterday we hit a high of 0.044 BTC before the pair retraced somewhat. We are currently trading at 0.03968 BTC.

With the end of the latest downtrend, ETH/BTC is back in a large range. A new uptrend requires a break above the 0.05906 BTC swing high. For a restart of the downtrend, the bears will have to push prices below the 0.02287 swing low.

Support on the way down can be found at the former support turned resistance now turned back to support at 0.03712. However note that this level will now act as much weaker support then it was before the break last week. On the top side we find potential resistance at the 0.044 swing high (weak) followed by 0.04661 BTC and the 0.05 round figure. On the long-term charts the picture is mixed with a bearish trend on the weekly but bullish on the monthly.

Dash Clawsback Some Losses

Since our last update Dash successfully clawed back some of the large losses. It’s now up over 37 percent since last Thursday. Still the gains haven’t been enough to end the current downtrend. For that to happen the bulls will have to push DSH/BTC above the 0.066 level. A decisive break of 0.8018 BTC swing high could start a new uptrend in prices.

Support below can be found at 0.05402, 0.0515 BTC and the 0.05 round figure. Lower still we find more potential levels at 0.0442, the 0.04 round figure and the most recent swing low at 0.03557. The eight-month low at 0.03452 BTC is another notable support level.

Higher up we have resistance at the most recent swing high of 0.0547 BTC (weak) followed by 0.0576 and the 0.06 round figure. Similarly to ETH/BTC, on the long-term charts the picture is mixed with a bearish trend on the weekly but a bullish trend on the monthly.
