ETHUSD Perspective And Levels: Strong But For How Long?

ETHUSD Update: Price is holding, but the failed breakout and lack of progress above 349 is concerning and highlights the risk at these levels.

When strong markets break out, this usually attracts more order flow. ETH is a market that is closely watched, and the failed breakout above 349 is concerning because where are all the buyers? I realize these markets may be slow and do not behave exactly like the other financial markets, but to me, this price action is a red flag.

On the bullish side, there is a new higher low in place at the 334 level and the market looks like it should test the highs again. Upon a subsequent break out along with follow through this market should make an attempt to test the 380 resistance. If it fails again, then I would steer clear of any new longs until a retest of a significant support level like 309 or below which is now the .618 of this bullish swing.

The reason for my growing concern about this price action is this: price has been sluggish within the 324 to 349 resistance zone which is related to the .618 of the broader bear swing. The fact that it is having trouble breaking out of this zone makes me more cautious because this area is a very convenient place to form a big picture failed high. If this scenario unfolds, we are more likely to test supports that we have not seen in a while like 270. This is not a prediction, just a concern because of the way price is behaving at these highs.

This market is not bearish because it has not taken out any support levels that would signal that type of environment. The problem is if it's not pushing highs soon, it will become vulnerable to any piece of negative news and the selling momentum will be high. And for that reason, the risk of buying at these levels is just too high for me.

In summary, this market is slowly inching higher and still has supportive structure in place, but the lack of follow through is concerning because from my experience it implies an increased potential for weakness. Keep in mind, I am sharing my perspective and how I make decisions based on price action. I am not telling you what to do. I don't control your account, you do. And if you are comfortable taking the associated risks, then you don't have to wait it out like me. I would rather be wrong about being out, than wrong about being in.

Questions and comments welcome.

Without Willy, Markus and Spoofy the crypto market doesn't move.

@MarcPMarkets, "Are you Markinson?" ;)

Kaffee: Did you talk to your friend at the NIS?
Lt. Weinberg: Yeah, he said if Markinson doesn't want to be found, we're not gonna find him. He said I could be Markinson and you wouldn't even know.
Kaffee: Are you Markinson?
Lt. Weinberg: No.
Kaffee: I'm not Markinson... that's two.
Volume is strangely LOW!

@donnguyen1022, yeah it is. I am not a fan of these type of markets. I do know one thing, nothing goes up forever. Hehe the market taught me that.
365 - looks bullish. Any update is following? Shall we close near 400 or it is better to hold for the end of the year ? What do you think ?
@mir-igor, this market is strong. As far as targets, it is anyone's guess. In terms of proportion 392 and 460 show up in my extensions. I can't tell you how long to hold for that is up to you and your risk tolerance. If you are more of an investor, then just hold and don't worry about the fluctuations. It is all a function of your risk profile and only you know that not me.
Dear Marc, could you analyse the NXT/USD market and show its prospects, biggest pitfalls or possibilities of reaching highs? Thank you!
@eimsav, from a quick look, it looks like it is in a large Wave 2. It needs to take out .18 to really go anywhere. These penny coins are the type that you just buy and hold. Not really good for swing trading in my opinion.
