Bitcoin, Ethereum Technical Analysis: ETH Stays Above $2,900 as Traders Eye $3,000 Ceiling
Ethereum remained above $2,900 to start the week, as the world’s second largest cryptocurrency consolidated its recent gains. Bitcoin was also consolidating, as it continued to trade above $41,000 during Monday’s session.
Despite a selloff to end last week, prices of BTC continued to hover above $41,000 on Monday, as market bulls appear to still be holding onto their positions.
Following a low of $40,668.04 earlier in today’s session, BTC/USD rose to an intraday high of $41,607.47 on Monday.
Although BTC is now trading around the $41,379 area, it remains 0.45% lower than yesterday’s high above the $42,200 ceiling.
BTC/USD – Daily Chart
Today’s session saw bitcoin fall below its floor of $40,580, which is its lowest level since last Friday, as markets were preparing for the weekend.
Looking at the chart, the reversal in price momentum came as BTC hit its long-term resistance point of $42,200, leading to bears re-entering the market.
In addition to this ceiling, the 14-day RSI was also unable to move past its own ceiling of 55, and now sits at 51.5.
Should this momentum persist, we could see bitcoin below $40,000 in the upcoming days.
On Monday, ETH/USD hit an intraday high of $2,934.69, as prices rebounded following a selloff during Sunday’s session.
The price of ETH fell as the asset approached the $3,010 ceiling, which comes as traders appear to have closed positions, leading to a turnaround, as seen before at this level.
