Ethereum has not yet broken through arc resistance – it just can’t seem to get out of the arc pair, which keeps pulling it down. So unsurprisingly, ethxbt has fallen through 5th square support of the setup I was using. This means my setup was too small. Taking the setup to the next larger size yields this picture of the 8-hour chart:
As of this writing it appears that Bitcoin is going to take out the recent $750 high, so it will likely go to at least the 2nd arc of the pair at ~ $790 before it slows. When/if it gets through that arc, there will be a buy signal on the daily chart. (Note that $790 is just above the recent high of $780 in June.)
Resistance is seen on the 8-hour chart, at the top of the square, which is in the same area, though a bit higher:
For the more esoteric-minded amongst you, consider this… If that point labelled here as “3” is touched and the market reverses there, it would suggest the market already knew, way back at the highlighted areas, that point 3 would be a pivot. Let’s see if that happens or not. If it does, we can discuss that further.
