Ethereum Price Analysis
ETH/USD – Daily CHART – SHORT TERM
We can see that Ethereum rolled over at the resistance at around $285 causing it to drop back beneath $240 briefly. However, we can see it also managed to remain above the short term .236 Fib Retracement support level as it attempts to push higher again.
It is currently battling resistance at $271.
Short term prediction: BULLISH
Ethereum remains bullish and would still need to drop beneath $220 before the bull run is invalidated.
If the bulls manage to break the resistance at $271.20, the next level of resistance is located at $278 and $285. Above this, resistance lies at $290 (1.272 FIb Extension) and $298 (1.414 Fib Extension). The resistance at $298 is further bolstered by a long term bearish .5 Fib Retracement and will require some strong volume to overcome.
If the buyers break $300, resistance lies at $310 (1.618 Fib Extension), $315 (longer termed 1.272 Fib Extension), and $320.
On the other hand, if the sellers push lower, the first level of support lies at $256 (.236 Fib Retracement). Beneath this, support lies at $250, $240, and $237 (.382 Fib Retracement). Additional support then lies at $225, $221, $215, $205, and $200.
The 100-days EMA is attempting to cross the 200-days EMA which would produce a very strong bullish signal. Additionally, the RSI still remains above 50 as the buyers continue to take charge of the market momentum.
Support: $256, $250, $247, $240, $235, $230.
Resistance: $271, $278, $285, $290, $298, $300, $310, $314, $334.
