Yesterday, Ethereum (ETH) buying volumes exceeded average and, during the day, buyers retraced the price from the 2HEMA55 to an uptrend. In the morning, volumes decreased; therefore, it has not been possible to overcome the green trend line yet.

If buyers continue the bullish onslaught, then they can test the target level of $400 and gain a foothold in the green upward channel. In the event that resistance at the lower border of the channel reverses the price downward, with low market activity, the pair may hold at the level of $360. With a jump in volatility, the decline may reach the support of $320.

Ethereum is trading at $373.47 at press time.


Yesterday, buyers were able to continue recovering from the level of average prices and came close to the resistance of $0.25. On the daily time frame, the Stoch RSI indicator lines show potential for the continuation of the recovery to the $0.265 area. Thus, the probability of a breakout of the $0.25 level is still relevant.

However, while we do not see a major buyer who could continue this rise, and if the pair fails to gain a foothold above the $0.25 mark, then the XRP price might roll back to the $0.23 support.
