Ethereum Price Hurdle
Ethereum price was seen correcting yesterday against the US Dollar, and I was hoping for it to last a bit longer than it actually did. There was a move above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $12.22 high to $11.46 low. However, the upside move could not last longer, as it found sellers and started a downside leg once again.
The price was stopped near a major technical confluence area. It was made of the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $12.22 high to $11.46 low, and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The ETH sellers successfully defended the upside move, and were able to push the price down. During the downside push, there was a break below a bullish trend line formed on the hourly chart (data feed via SimpleFX) of ETH/USD.
The price is now back towards the last swing low of $11.45, and currently finding support near $11.50. It looks like there can be a new low in ETH/USD before the price starts to recover. Let us see what can be the next stop in the short term, which according to me might be at $11.20.
Hourly MACD – The MACD is back into the bearish zone, with gain in the momentum.
Hourly RSI – The RSI is now back below the 50 level.
Major Support Level – $11.45
Major Resistance Level – $11.80
