Ethereum price analysis [ETH/BTC]

In the last analysis, we discussed that Ethereum price remains sell on rallies near 0.0410BTC and 0.0420BTC versus bitcoin. ETH to BTC faced a strong selling interest recently and declined below the 0.0400BTC range support, opening the doors for more losses.

It has moved above the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the recent drop from the 0.0397BTC high to 0.0333BTC low. The recovery seems positive above the 0.0350BTC level in the short term, but there are many hurdles on the upside.

An initial resistance is near the 0.0360BTC followed by a crucial bearish trend line in place with resistance at 0.0370BTC on the same chart. More importantly, the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the recent drop from the 0.0397BTC high to 0.0333BTC low is at 0.0365BTC to act as a resistance.

A break above the trend line resistance and 0.0365BTC won’t be easy. If ETH buyers succeed, the price could trade towards the 0.0385BTC level and the 50 SMA (2-hours).

Overall, Ethereum is trading in a strong bearish zone below 0.0400BTC against bitcoin and below $250 versus the US dollar. As long as ETH is below these levels, it could continue to struggle and may perhaps drop to new monthly lows.
