Ether Little Changed, Dash Down

Both Ether and Dash are trading little changed versus bitcoin. Ether is up by 0.11% while Dash is lower by 0.84 percent since last Thursday. Not large moves by any means and especially not for the crypto market which tends to be more volatile than traditional markets.

Ether Little Changed

Ether is quoted little changed vs BTC. The altcoin had a short and uneventful trip below the 0.07 BTC figure on June 30th only to bounce back quickly. We are quoted at 0.07115 BTC right now, not far from where we were trading at on June 28th.

Ether is still in range on the daily charts, we remain in ‘wait and see’ mode here. The shallow break below the previous lows doesn’t count as a trend changer. As we noted in our previous article, we are looking for a decisive break of a level, not just a quick and shallow spike below it. There are a lot of games being played around important levels like 0.07 BTC so you shouldn’t jump the gun too quickly on any break.

The number to beat is now 0.06889 BTC, a decisive break below here should start a new downtrend in prices. Support below here can be found at 0.06606 BTC followed by the former swing high at 0.05906 BTC.

On the upper end, we need to see a break above 0.08061 BTC for a new rally. Higher up there’s resistance at 0.08542 BTC followed by the 0.08829 swing high. Higher still we have the 0.09 and 0.1 BTC round figures as potential resistance levels. A breakout above may open to door to the 2018 high at 0.121 BTC. On the weekly charts, ETH/BTC is range-bound while the monthlies are still holding on to the bullish bias.

More Losses for Dash

The downtrend in DSH/BTC is still in play. The crypto hit new lows yesterday, trading to 0.03526 BTC before bouncing higher. We are currently quoted at 0.03662 BTC per coin.

A breakout above 0.03930 BTC is needed to end the bearish trend. However the threshold for a new rally is set a bit higher at 0.04169 BTC.

We have support on the way down at 0.03526 BTC and 0.03452 BTC. The latter level is also a 14-month low for Dash. A breakdown below here could exacerbate the losses. On the longer-term charts, prices are bearish on the weekly charts but bullish on the monthlies.
