Aayush Jindal | October 5, 2017 | 6:00 am

Key Highlights

  • ETH price is attempting an upside move above $290 against the US Dollar, but lacking momentum.
  • There was a break above a key bearish trend line with resistance at $290 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via SimpleFX).
  • The price needs to gain pace above $292 to surpass the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Ethereum price is attempting an upside move against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD needs to gather pace above $292 in order to capitalize further.

Ethereum Price Resistance

There were multiple attempts to break the $287-286 support zone in ETH price against the US Dollar. The price formed a decent support at $286 and started an upside move. It broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $303.63 high to $285.75 low. Moreover, there was a break above a key bearish trend line with resistance at $290 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. These are positive signs above $290, but the pair is lacking momentum.

Therefore, any further gains above $292 won’t be easy. The most important resistance is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $303.63 high to $285.75 low. The 100 hourly simple moving average is also near $294 to act as a hurdle. There is a chance of another dip in prices towards $290-288 before buyers step in again.
