- Indicators turn bearish on the 4-hour chart
- ETH/USD looks to be heading back to the 200.00 psychological support
The likes of BTC, ETH and XRP have all fallen in tandem after news of a tariff delay on China was announced.
The chart below shows a 4-hour chart of ETH/USD falling 1.49% from 208.35 to 205.94 after the measures were announced. Cryptocurrencies have been threatening a move lower all day after Bitcoin flirted with the 11,120.00 area all morning. Maybe now traders have the catalyst for a break to lower support zones.
Looking at the chart now, you can see that the RSI indicator broke the 50 mid-line and hangs around the 35 point, while, still sloping in a downward fashion. The MACD is also setting up for a bearish crossover with the histogram hugging the mid-line and the moving averages converging to cross over. From a candlestick perspective, purists will be upset that the hammer rejection candle before this one was not successful but that is the nature of trading, one must look for a confluence of signals for confirmation.
