Yesterday, trading was calm, at medium volumes. Sellers tried to push the line at $8,632 but buyers would not allow the price to drop below $8,500. Tonight, on declining volumes, buyers tried to continue the recovery, but could not rise above the hourly EMA55. Until the morning, the pair will remain on the rather narrow side.

It is still of interest to roll back the price to the area of the $8,000 trend line, since the support of the upper border of the downward channel is extremely important for continuing the bull run, which broke off around the annual maximum of $9,200.

Bitcoin is trading at $8,646 at press time.


Ethereum (ETH) is sitting in a much better position than Bitcoin (BTC). The chief altcoin has risen by 3.52% over the last day.

Applying a Fibonacci retracement on the 4H chart, one will notice that Ethereum (ETH) is sitting at the 78.6% level. Currently, there are no prerequisites for a price rise as the coin is still facing a correction after recent growth to $178. In this case, a more likely scenario is the closest mark at $156.19 (61.8%).

Ethereum is trading at $167.25 at press time.


Yesterday, sellers set a daily minimum of $0.224. By the end of the day, buyers were able to restore the price to the previous level, at the support of $0.232. At night, the recovery continued, allowing the pair to overcome the resistance level of the sentry EMA55.
