Ethereum Price Resistance
Ethereum price remained under heavy selling pressure against the US Dollar this past week. I mentioned in the last couple of analysis that selling should be a preferred option in the short term. It did work, as the price after a minor correction, declined once more. There was a move towards the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the drop from the $13.34 high to $12.49 low where sellers appeared. Also, the last bearish trend line on the hourly chart acted as a perfect resistance.
Currently, there are two bearish trend lines formed on the hourly chart (data feed via SimpleFX) of ETH/USD, which may act as a hurdle on the upside. It looks like the price may decline further, and test the 1.618 extension of the last swing from the $11.84 low to $12.28 high. It represents a major technical level at 11.60, where there is a chance of buyers appearing.
I think the price has formed a short-term downtrend, and it may remain under a bearish pressure. Selling remains a preferred option until there is at least a daily close back above $12.40.
