Ethereum remained above $2,100 to start the weekend, despite crypto markets moving into consolidation. Following this week’s gains, traders have seemingly started to secure gains, with the global market cap down by 0.52% as of writing this. Bitcoin has fallen below yesterday’s peak above $31,000.
Bitcoin (BTC) moved back below the $31,000 level on Saturday, as cryptocurrency markets consolidated to start the weekend.
Following a high of $31,005.61 on Friday, BTC/USD dropped to a low of $30,044.50 earlier in today’s session.
Yesterday’s peak saw bitcoin climb to its highest level since June 7, which has seemingly prompted bulls to secure gains.
Looking at the chart, the decline in price comes as the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) collided with a ceiling at 71.00.
At the time of writing, the index is now tracking at 70.18, which is marginally higher than a floor at 68.00.
In the event the RSI drops below 70.00 there is a good chance that even more bulls could vacate earlier positions, in order to protect recent profits.
Although relatively lower than Friday’s high, ethereum (ETH) continued above $2,100 so far in Saturday’s session.
ETH/USD fell to an intraday bottom at $2,049.08 earlier in the day, however, has since recovered and is currently trading at $2,103.18.
This is marginally lower than yesterday’s peak of $2,120.59, which saw ETH trade at its strongest point since last May.
Similar to bitcoin, ethereum, which is the world’s second-largest cryptocurrency, has collided with a ceiling on the RSI indicator.
The aforementioned point of resistance at 75.00 was hit on Friday, with the index now tracking at 74.88.
Should ethereum bulls move beyond this point, there is a possibility that prices could head closer to $2,200 this weekend.
