Price analysis of Ethereum
ETH / USD – SHORT TERM – DAILY DAILY
Analyzing the market from the short-term perspective above, we can see that Ethereum has continued to trade sideways in its consolidation phase. It is currently trading in support provided by the Fibonacci 382 retracement level at the price of $ 222.78.
In the last 2 weeks, we can see that the market has started to form a growing wedge formation and price action is rapidly approaching the apex of the consolidation model. A break up could be the first falling domino that sees Ethereum rise above $ 300 again.
In the event that the price action does not exceed the rise, we would immediately see significant resistance at the average level of 1.414 Fibonacci Extension level (drawn in green) at a price of $ 253.69. If the bullish momentum can continue even higher, we can expect further support at the shorter Fibonacci extension levels of 1,272 and 1,414 (traced in blue) at the price of $ 268.13 and $ 276.59.
Alternatively, if bears push price action below the triangle, we can expect immediate significant support in the short term. 618 Fibonacci retracement level at $ 202.82. If bears push the market even lower below $ 200, then more support can be expected at the .766 levels and Fibonacci retraction of the .886 at the price of $ 188 and $ 180, respectively.
For a significant uptrend, we will closely observe the RSI indicator in the daily schedule where we expect CSR to make its way towards oversold conditions near the handle 70. As long as RSI can remain above the 50, this should indicate that the bulls have control of the moment in the market.
