Aayush Jindal | February 15, 2017 | 6:00 am

Key Highlights

  • At the moment, there is a connecting bullish trend line formed on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via SimpleFX) with support at $12.65.
  • The pair may continue to remain in an uptrend since the bias has now changed to bullish.

Ethereum price traded sharply higher against the US Dollar to trade above $12.50. ETH/USD now remains supported and could trade further higher.

Ethereum Price Upside Momentum

We saw there were tiny range moves in ETH price against the US Dollar with resistance near $11.20. However, the price was able to find strength later yesterday, and spiked higher above the $11.20 resistance. Once the range pattern was cleared, there was a solid upside move. The price broke a lot many resistances like $12.00, $12.50 and $13.00. Later, it found resistance near $13.20, and started a correction.

The price has moved down a few points, and trading near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $10.98 low to $13.22 high. It may find support near $12.65, as there is also a connecting bullish trend line formed on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via SimpleFX). A break below it could ignite an extension of the current correction. In that case, the price might head towards the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $10.98 low to $13.22 high.

Ethereum Price Technical Analysis

However, the chances of a break higher are more since the indicators are bullish. So, as long as the $12.65 support holds, the price may move back above $13.00. The next hurdle above $13.20 for ETH/USD is around the $13.40 level, which is a pivot zone as well.

Hourly MACD – The MACD is super bullish at the moment.

Hourly RSI – The RSI is in the overbought levels, suggesting caution.

Major Support Level – $12.65

Major Resistance Level – $13.20
