Ethereum

Ethereum was bearish for the better part of last week. By the end of the week, it was down by 10.3%.

Ethereum started bearish last week, a continuation of the selloff that had started a week earlier. 

Monday’s selloff was quite strong and saw Ethereum eat into most of the gains it made in the previous two weeks.

The selloff accelerated on Tuesday, but bears failed to push Ethereum low enough to test the 23.6% Fibonacci support at $4026.20. This saw bulls regain control and recover most of the losses from earlier in the day.

However, with bearish momentum strong in the broader market, bears regained control on Wednesday. By the end of the day, Ethereum was trading at the 23.6% Fibonacci support at $4026.20.

This support proved to be quite strong, and on Thursday, Ethereum bounced off it. The bullish momentum was quite strong, and by the end of the day, Ethereum had eaten into all the losses from Wednesday.

Bullish momentum accelerated on Friday and into the weekend. However, bulls were not strong enough to reverse the losses from Monday’s strong selloff.

This has seen Ethereum start the new week bearish. At the time of going to press, Ethereum was close to retesting the 23.6% Fibonacci support at $4026.20.
