Price analysis of the ether
Yesterday we discussed the importance of the support area of $ 120.00 for ETH / USD. The pair remained well and moved above $ 125.00 and $ 130.00 before the sellers appeared near the $ 139.00-140.00 zone.
ETH / BTC consolidated above the 0.0320BTC support and moved a few points higher. The torque must settle above the 0.0350BTC resistance for a displacement above the 0.0380BTC and 0.0400BTC levels.
Looking at the 2-hour chart of Eth / USD, the pair fell heavily after reaching a new monthly high at $ 161.35 and moved below support levels $ 150.00 and $ 140, 00. However, the decline was protected by the support zone $ 120.00-124.00.
More importantly, there is an uptrend line formed with support for $ 124.00 on the same chart. A strong confluence purchase zone is in place near the trendline, the $ 120.00 support and the 50 Fibonacci retracement level of the uptrend move from the low of $ 82.12 to $ 161.35.
If there was a closing below the $ 120.00 support, the price could fall heavily in the short term. Turning to the 30-minute chart of Eth / USD, the pair recently withdrew from the $ 139.00 zone.
Ether seems to prepare for the next break, with a crucial breakout model and support for $ 128.00. For the top, a break above the resistance of $ 132.00 will likely open the doors for a break up above the resistance of $ 135.00.
The current price action is positive as long as the Ether price exceeds $ 124.00 and $ 120.00. In the short term, there may be consolidation moves before the next break above $ 135.00 or below $ 120.00.
