Yesterday’s daily high was actually reached during the European session when BTC/USD gained ground and climbed to the 8097.35 area after again Bullishly moving above the 50-bar MA (4-hourly).  Some Stops were elected above the 8062.27 area during the move higher, representing the 38.2% retracement of the move from 9090.00 to 7427.00.
This most recent resurgence in BTC/USD over the past couple of days has some chartists again focused on the upside. The 8258.50 and 8454.73 areas represent the 50% and 61.8% retracements of the aforementioned range and Stops are likely in place above these areas. Another very important level is the 8338.78 area, representing the 76.4% retracement of the move from 9948.12 to 3128.89.  Additionally, the 100-bar MA (4-hourly) is now indicating around the 8241.52 area.

Ethereum
Ethereum (ETH/USD) reversed course early in today’s Asian session as the pair tested the 249.38 level after attempting to gain a foothold above the 50-bar MA (4-hourly) but then fell to the 245.26 area. The pair found some good buying activity late in yesterday’s North American session and was lifted to multi-session highs, testing the 61.8% retracement of the move from 222.88 to 288.77. Strong bids emerged during yesterday’s European session that saw ETH/USD gain ground from the 233.32 area.
Chartists note that today’s intraday high was right around the 23.6% retracement of the 233.00 – 254.40 range. The pair’s inability to sustain its brief amount of time above the 200-bar MA (hourly) is generally Bearish and refocuses attention on the 100-bar MA (hourly), now indicating around 243.58. If the pair is able to extend its recent upward trajectory, some key levels are found between the 250 – 254 range. Also, the 255.83 area is the 50% retracement of the move from 222.88 to 288.77 and the 256.34 area is the 61.8% retracement of the move from 274.75 to 226.56.
