The price of Ether is back in a bullish zone compared to the US dollar, while it is consolidating against bitcoins. The ETH / USD may continue to level up once buyers have emptied $ 98.00 and $ 100.00.
The price of Ether extended the gains and tested the resistance zone of $ 98.00 against the US dollar.
It is likely that the ETH / USD will rise further above $ 98.00, $ 100.00 and $ 105.00.
ETH / BTC is slowly moving higher towards the 0.0270BTC resistance level.
Technically, the 6-hour chart indicators are currently close to the midline lines in the bullish territory.
Price analysis of the ether
Yesterday we discussed the fact that the ETH / USD rally could extend to $ 98.00. The pair moved higher, breaking resistance levels of $ 92.50 and $ 96.00 and testing the $ 98.00 stumbling block in which sellers emerged.
ETH / BTC remained well supported above the 0.0260BTC support. The pair is currently moving higher towards the 0.0270BTC resistance, above which there may be a strong upward movement towards 0.0280BTC and 0.0285BTC.
The 6-hour chart of the ETH / USD shows many positive signs above the $ 90.00 level. The pair probably formed a short low at $ 82.12 and started a solid upward move above $ 85.00 and a crucial bearish trendline.
There was a net break above the resistance of $ 92.00 and the Fibonacci retracement level to 23.6 from the $ 126.77 to $ 82.12 drop. However, the price occurred in a major resistance area at $ 98.00-100.00. A new weekly maximum was formed at $ 98.49; the price later corrected below.
The price was trading below the support of $ 95.00, but the previous high swing around $ 93.50 represented a decent support along with the Fibonacci retracement level of 38.2 from the recent $ 82 hike, 12 to $ 98.49.
At the top, a downtrend line on the 2-hour chart behaves like an obstacle near $ 96.80. A successful break above the trendline and $ 98.00 could clear the path for a $ 100.00 test. The current technical structure on the 2-hour chart indicates that Ether will likely extend earnings over $ 98.00 and $ 100.00 in the short term.
Should there be a downward correction, ETH will probably find a strong buying interest near $ 93.00, below which the price could test the $ 88.00 support.
