Price analysis of Ethereum
ETH / USD – SHORT TERM – 4HR TABLE
Analyzing the price action from the above 4HR perspective, we can see that the market has continued its decline since BTC fell below $ 6000 on November 14, 2018.
We can see that the market has remained largely under the 7-day EMA indicating the great influence that sellers in the market command. We can see that price action has continued to fall below many important support areas as the market continues to find a truce area.
From the chart above, we can see that price action has recently found support for the downside 1.618 Fibonacci Extension (drawn in purple) for $ 106.98. As the market has reached this level, we can see that ETH / USD has increased slightly. However, judging by pressure from sellers, we can not really expect this level of support.
Going forward, if the bears continue with their aggressive nature and push the price below $ 106.98, we can expect further support below and then find ourselves at the psychological support of the round number at $ 100. This area also contains a long-term Fibonacci 1.618 extension (drawn in green) for $ 100.46.
If the sale continues to fall in price below $ 100, then we can expect further support below $ 90, followed by the support provided by the long-term descending level 1.618 Fibonacci Extension (drawn in orange) for $ 83.61.
Alternatively, if the bulls manage to bundle their efforts and push the highest price action by $ 106, they will meet the immediate resistance above at 1.141 Fibonacci Extension level (drawn in purple) for $ 121, 89 followed by the 1.25 Fibonacci Extension (purple) level at $ 132.28.
The RSI on the 4HR time frame remains under the control of the bears while trading under the handle 50. For a sign that the bulls are ready to start a shot, we will try for the RSI to return above the handle 50 to indicate that the bulls are in possession of the market momentum.
