BTC/USD – Daily Chart

Since hitting this floor, prices have somewhat rebounded, with bulls ramping up pressure in order to keep them above the support.

Looking at the chart, the 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) has also fallen to its lowest point in over five weeks, however there could be more lows ahead.

Should the RSI move below its current floor of 46.60, price strength could drop to as low as 34, as seen in late February.

Ethereum

ETH also fell to a multi-week low during today’s session, however prices have since rebounded after hitting a recent support point.

As of writing, ETH/USD had dropped to a bottom of $3,155.58 during today’s session, which was close to its support of $3,145.

However, prices have rallied since hitting this point, and ETH is now trading at $3,250.06, which is still 1.69% below yesterday’s high.

ETH/USD – Daily Chart

Similar to BTC, the 14-day RSI on the ETH chart is now tracking at 53.23, which is its lowest point since March 15, however it is still relatively overbought, as it remains above 50.

The moving average of 10-days (red) has also shown some signs of slowing, as it has begun trending sideways, which increases the chance of a future downward cross.

Should this happen, prices will likely be trading below the $3,000 level, as momentum would have truly turned bearish at that point.
