Ethereum Price Resistance
There was no major move in ETH price recently as it remained below the $298 resistance against the US Dollar. However, it seems like the price is losing steam and slowly below the $285 level. Yesterday, we saw a contracting triangle pattern with support at $282-284 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair failed to hold the triangle support at $284 and moved below $282. The most important thing was a break of the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $238.50 low to $298.70 high.
If the recent break is true, there are chances of further slides below $280. The next important support is near $268. The 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $238.50 low to $298.70 high is near $268. Moreover, the 100 hourly simple moving average is also near $268. It means the $268 support is very important for the current trend and must hold losses.
On the upside, there is a connecting bearish trend line forming with current resistance at $296. A break above $296 followed by a close above $298 is required for further gains. In the short term, there can be swing moves towards $270-268 where buyers might emerge.
Hourly MACD – The MACD is slowly moving back into the bearish zone.
