Ethereum Price Resistance

It was an amazing week for ETH price, as it managed to gain by more than $4-5 gainst the US dollar. It was also seen trading higher against the Bitcoin, as ETH/BTC broke the 0.0120BTC resistance to trade above 0.0150BTC. The best part this past week was a close above the all-important $14.80 resistance area. The stated area at $14.80 and $15.00 acted as a major hurdle on many occasions. A break above it was a good sign for Ethereum buyers in the short term.

The price surged higher and traded above the $20.00 handle. A new high was set near $20.53. However, the price failed to trade towards the all-time high of $21.16 (data feed via SimpleFX).
