Bitcoin dropped by a total of 11% over the past week as the cryptocurrency broke beneath previous support at $9,550 and plummetted beneath support at $9,000. It continued to decline until reaching the current support at the 200-days EMA, which is bolstered by the .5 Fib Retracement at around $8,600. The momentum is certainly on the bearish side, and we should continue to expect further declines this week within the market.
Once the rising trend line is broken, support is found at the downside 1.618 Fibonacci Extension level priced at $8,550. This is followed by support at $8,400, $8,250, and $8,200 (.618 Fib Retracement). If it continues beneath this, added support lies at $8,100 (downside 1.272 Fib Extension), $8,000, and $7,900.
Toward the upside, resistance lies at $8,800 and $9,000. Above $9,000, resistance lies at $9,150 and $9,400.
The Bitcoin price decline also caused a major downturn in Ethereum as it dropped by 16% this past week. The cryptocurrency broke beneath the $255 support as it continued to drop toward the current support at $220. Likewise, the momentum is within the bearish territory, and we could potentially see ETH reaching $200 over the following days.
If the sellers push lower, the first level of support lies at the rising trend line at around $210. This is followed by support at $205 and $200. If the bears push beneath $200, support lies at $195 (100-days EMA), $190 (200-days EMA), and $185.

If it drops beneath the 200-days EMA and $300, support can be expected at $290 (downside 1.414 Fib Extension), $280, and $255 (.786 Fib Retracement). If it can rebound from here, resistance is located at $330 (100-days EMA), $340, and $380.
