Ethereum Price Correction
Ethereum price ETH fell sharply this past week against the US Dollar and surprised many traders. It traded as low as $11.48 where the bulls appeared and prevented further losses. The price is currently forming a critical contracting triangle pattern on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD (data feed via SimpleFX). It may play a major role for the next move in the near term. The upper trend line of the triangle pattern is also coinciding with the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $13.34 high to $11.48 low.
So, the triangle resistance holds a lot of importance in the near term. The last couple of candles are positive, and the pair is continuously finding bids on the downside. It looks like there is a chance that the price may gain traction and trade higher. The next stop on the upside could be around the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $13.34 high to $11.48 low at $12.40.
The stated level also holds a lot of value as the 100 simple moving average on the 4-hours chart is positioned near it. Overall, there is a chance of an upside move, which may be limited.
