Ethereum and Stellar’s Lumen Daily Tech Analysis – 20/11/19

Bob Mason

Ethereum

Ethereum fell by 1.16% on Tuesday. Following on from a 3.28% slide on Monday, Ethereum ended the day at $175.73.

Another mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning intraday high $178.14 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $183.35, Ethereum slid to a late afternoon intraday low $172.38.

Ethereum fell through the first major support level at $172.96 before rising to $176 levels late in the day.

The move back through to $176 levels was short-lived, however, with Ethereum wrapping up the day at $175 levels.

The extended bearish trend, formed at late April 2018’s swing hi $828.97, remained firmly intact. A reversal from June’s current year high $364.49 back through the 23.6% FIB of $257 reaffirmed the extended bearish trend.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was up by 0.1% to $175.90. A choppy start to the day saw Ethereum fall to an early morning low $174.91 before striking a high $176.74.

Ethereum left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to move back through to $176 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $178.45.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from the morning high $176.74.

Barring a broad-based crypto rebound, the first major resistance level would pin Ethereum back from $180 levels.

Failure to move back through to $176 levels could see Ethereum hit reverse.

A fall back through to $175.40 levels would bring the first major support level at $172.69 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off through the day, however, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$170 levels.

Stellar’s Lumen would need the support of the broader market, however, to break out from Tuesday’s high $0.066902.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally on the day, Stellar’s Lumen would likely fall short of the second major resistance level at $0.06860.

Failure to hold onto $0.066 levels could see Stellar’s Lumen slide into the red.

A fall through to $0.06550 levels would bring the first major support level at $0.06410 into play.
