Ethereum Price – Sell Near Trend Line?
Ethereum price failed to move back higher, and once the price broke $4.0 level, sellers gained control and took the price towards the $3.50 levels. The broken trend line and support area on the 2-hours chart (data feed via Kraken) played well and acted as a sell zone. The price moved down after testing the broken support area to test out sell target of $3.50.
Now, there is a bearish formed on the 2-hours chart (data feed via Kraken), which can be considered as a sell area in the near term. If the price moves or corrects higher from the current levels, then sellers may take a stand near the highlighted trend line and resistance area. The price is well below the 100 simple moving average (2-hours chart, Kraken), which is a sign that there is a lot of bearish pressure at present.
On the upside along with the highlighted trend line and resistance area, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $5.960 high to $3.49 low may act as a major barrier for buyers and a sell zone for sellers.
Hourly MACD – The MACD is almost flat, suggesting a consolidation phase in the short term.
Hourly RSI – The RSI is well below the 50 level, which is a sign that sellers are in charge.
Intraday Support Level – $3.50
Intraday Resistance Level – $4.15-20
