Ethereum Price Analysis
ETH/USD – Daily CHART – SHORT TERM
Taking a look at the daily chart above, we can clearly see Ethereum trending lower over the past week of trading. It was struggling to break above resistance at the $160 level for the past few days which caused it to dip lower into the support at the rising support trend line today.
From here, Ethereum surged much higher to break above the $160 resistance and reach a higher level of resistance at $171.89 which is provided by a bearish .5 Fib Retracement level – measured from the March high to low.
Short term prediction: BULLISH
If ETH can close above $176 we would consider the market to be bullish moving forward. It would need to drop back beneath $150 to be considered as bearish.
If the bulls break $172, the first level of resistance lies at $176.50 (1.414 Fib Extension). This is followed by resistance at $180, $187 (1.618 Fib Extension), $191 (bearish .618 Fib Retracement), and $200.
On the other hand, if the sellers push the market lower, we can expect strong support at $160. Beneath this, support lies at $153 (.236 Fib Retracement), $150, and $140.
Support: $160, $155, $150, $145, $140, $135, $130, $120, $116, $110, $104, $100, $92.85, $80, $76.
Resistance: $172, $176, $180, $191, $200, $205, $210, $213, $220, $227.
