Ethereum Price Upside Break
There was an increase in buying interest for ETH price, taking it above the last high of $389.24 against the US Dollar. The price recently traded as high as $393 and looks set for further gains in the near term. It is approaching the 1.236 extension of the last drop from the $389.24 high to $365.72 low. On the downside, the price remains supported by the $388-385 levels.
The most important support is near this week’s crucial bullish trend line with current support at $388 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. As long as the pair is following the trend line and remains above $385, it could even break the $400 level. The next stop could be the 1.618 extension of the last drop from the $389.24 high to $365.72 low around $403. If buyers stay in control, a test of $405 is also possible.
Only proper close below $385 could dent the current market sentiment. At the moment, it seems very unlikely that the price would break $385 or even test $380. Buying in the short term with a tight stop below $385 can be considered.
