The price of Ether started a short-term rebound against the US dollar and bitcoin. However, ETH / USD is facing a solid obstacle near the resistance of $ 200.00.
The price of Ether has corrected itself higher and has tested the resistance of $ 200.00 against the US dollar.
A crucial resistance zone was formed near $ 200.00-2010 on the 2-hour chart of Eth / USD.
ETH / BTC remained above the 0.0310BTC support as sellers failed to gain momentum.
Technically, the 2-hour chart indicators are moving higher towards the midline in the bearish territory.
Price analysis of the ether
Yesterday we discussed that ETH / USD remains at risk of further losses lower than the support of $ 195.00. The pair moved down, traded at $ 192.69, found a strong buying interest and eventually bounced back sharply.
More importantly, ETH / BTC buyers managed to keep the pair above the 0.0310BTC support. The pair has recovered slightly, but is facing many barriers near the 0.0315BTC and 0.0316BTC levels.
The 2-hour chart of the Ethics / USD suggests that there was an abrupt bearish reaction to the $ 192.00 level. However, the sellers failed to get traction, resulting in a new round of purchases on Ether. The price rebounded sharply and outperformed $ 195.00 and $ 197.50.
The upward move was strong, but buyers struggled to beat the $ 200.00 resistance area and Fibonacci's 50% retracement level of the decline from $ 207.01 up to $ 192, 69 below.
More importantly, there seems to be a crucial resistance zone formed near $ 200.00-2010 on the same chart. Therefore, the price of Ether must be higher than $ 200.00 and $ 201.00 to recover further in the short term.
Turning to the 30-minute ETH / USD chart, the pair is consolidating gains below the $ 199.00 level. There is a range of resistance near $ 198.50 and support close to $ 197.00. If Ether corrected below $ 197.00, there may be a sustained decline to $ 195.00.
The global price action is positive in the short term provided that Ether is above $ 195.00. For the top, an immediate hurdle is $ 198.50, above which buyers could touch close to $ 200.00 and $ 201.00.
