Ethereum Price Analsis
ETH/USD – SHORT TERM – 4HR CHART
From the short term 4HR chart above we can see that Ethereum had found stability in our previously highlighted combined support area provided by 2 downside 1.618 Fibonacci Extension levels (drawn in orange and purple) priced in the $106 – $108 price region.
We can see that after hitting this support the market has managed to rebound but is now currently trading at resistance provided by the short term downside 1.414 Fibonacci Extension level (drawn in purple) priced at $121.89.
Moving forward, if the bulls can continue with their recovery and push ETH/USD above the $121.89 resistance level we can expect immediate higher resistance above to then be located at the short term downside 1.272 FIbonacci Extension level (drawn in purple) priced at $132.28. Further significant resistance above this can then be located at the 100 day moving average price level which presently hovers around the $140 level.
If the buyers can continue even higher with their ascent then we can expect more resistance above to be located at the short term bearish .382 and .5 Fibonacci Retracement levels (drawn in red) priced at $148.23 and $162.72 respectively. This Fibonacci Retracement is measured from the entire bearish swing seen during November 2018.
Alternatively, in our bearish outline, if the sellers re-enter the market and begin pushing price action lower again we can expect immediate support below to be located at the aforementioned combine support area at $106 – $108 provided by the two downside 1.618 Fibonacci Extension levels.
If the sellers continue to drive price action even further lower we can then expect more support below to be located at the long term downside 1.618 FIbonacci Extension level (drawn in green) priced at $100.46.
The RSI has recently broken above the 50 handle on the 4HR time frame which indicates that the bulls have regained control of the market momentum in the short term. If the RSI can remain above the 50 handle we can expect ETH/USD to travel higher.
