Ethereum Price Analysis
ETH/USD – DAILY CHART – MEDIUM TERM
What Has Been Going On?
Analysing the market from the daily chart above, we can see that Ethereum had bounced from its 2018 bearish trend toward the end of December 2018 as the market had reached support at a downside 1.414 Fibonacci Extension level (drawn in blue) priced at $84.
After rebounding from this level of support the market went on to rally to a high around $165 during January 2019. The market then went on to fall during January 2019 until support was met at a short term downside 1.618 Fibonacci Extension level (drawn in blue) priced at $103.
During February 2019, Ethereum went on to rally again but failed to overcome the resistance at the $165 handle once again and has reversed. We can see that, during March 2019, price action has fallen slightly and is now trading at the support provided by the short term 0.618 Fibonacci Retracement level (drawn in green) priced at $128.21.
What Is The Current Trend?
The current short term trend is neutral. For this market to be considered bullish, we will need to see ETH/USD break above the resistance at $165. If Ethereum was to break below the $128 level, we could consider this market as bearish.
Where Can We Go From Here?
If the bulls can hold the support at the short term 0.618 Fibonacci Retracement level (drawn in green) priced at $128.21 and continue to climb higher, we can expect higher resistance above to be located at the bearish 0.5 and 0.618 Fibonacci Retracement levels (drawn in red) priced at $135 and $142, respectively.
Further resistance toward the upside is then expected at the $152, $160 and $165 levels.
Alternatively, if the sellers regroup and continue to push the market below the support at $128.21, we can expect immediate support below to be located at the short term 1.272 Fibonacci Extension level (drawn in lilac) priced at $125.71.
If the sellers continue to drop the market beneath $125, more support is then expected at the 0.786 and 0.886 Fibonacci Retracement levels (drawn in green) priced at $117 and $110, respectively.
What Are The Technical Indicators Showing?
The RSI has recently slipped beneath the 50 handle which indicates that the sellers have taken control of the market momentum. For a sign that the selling pressure is fading, we will look for the RSI to head back toward the 50 level.
