Bitcoin (BTC) tested $8,637 during early Asian hours; however, the recovery stopped short of the psychological $9,000  While the coin managed to regain some ground tetrode at $8,750  by press time, it is still down 3% since on a day-to-day basis and stayed unchanged since the beginning of Monday.  A failure to move above $9,000  will worsen the short-term technical picture and bring more bears to the market. 

Ethereum touched $198.00 early on Monday but managed to return above $200.00 to trade at $203.00 by press time.
