Ether Gets a Boost From Conference

FXOpen

Ether got a boost from the Devcon2 conference in Shanghai and managed to finally break to the upside. Dash, on the other hand, stabilized somewhat after losing over 30 percent in one month.

Ether Breaks Out

Ether broke above the 0.02204 monthly high on Tuesday as the Devcon2 conference got underway. But the lead-up to the event wasn’t a smooth sailing for the new cryptocurrency. Ethereum’s most popular client Geth suffered a DOS attack. This resulted in nodes running out of memory and crashing on the same block (2283416). Other Ethereum clients were not affected.

Prices initially crashed from 0.02135 to 0.01891 before a fix was published. This led to a quick rebound next day followed by the breakout we see on the chart below.

What’s next for ETH/BTC? We’re now in a short-term uptrend. Resistance above can be found at yesterday’s high of 0.024 followed by 0.02610 BTC. The resistance levels continue with the 0.028 and 0.03 round figures.

A break below the 0.01891 lows is needed to end the current uptrend. But a new downtrend requires a move below this month’s low at 0.018 BTC. Support levels can be found at the 0.015 round figure followed by 0.0139, 0.0123 and a second round level at 0.01 BTC. On the medium-term (weekly) charts ETH/BTC is neutral.

Dash Stabilizes Somewhat

Dash prices finally managed to stabilize somewhat after falling over 30 percent from the 0.02668 high reached last month. On FXOpen, the highest high in August was at 0.031 but this was likely due to low liquidity.

Dash is now in a neutral mode on short-term charts. The downtrend is over. But a new rally requires a break above this month’s high at 0.02140. Similarly, a break below this month’s low at 0.01741 would restart the downmove.

On the upside, we have a resistance at the 0.02248 swing high followed by 0.02465 and 0.025 BTC. Last month’s high at 0.02668 BTC and the all-time high at 0.028 are also worth a watch.

Below this month’s low (0.01741), we find a support at the 0.015 round figure followed by the 0.01389 spike high and the 0.01267 high reached back in June. The medium-term and long-term Dash charts look more bullish than bearish.
