Aayush Jindal | January 22, 2018 | 5:00 am

Key Highlights

  • ETH price traded as high as $1151 before starting a downside correction against the US Dollar.
  • There is a short-term bearish trend line forming with resistance at $1050 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via SimpleFX).
  • The pair is currently trading just above the $1000 level and is struggling to remain above the mentioned level.

Ethereum price is currently correcting lower against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD may break the $1000 level for more downsides in the near term.

Ethereum Price Resistance

Recently, we saw a correction wave from the $753 swing low in ETH price against the US Dollar. The price traded above the $1000 level and even broke the $1120 resistance. However, the upside move was limited by the $1150 level and a short-term top was formed at $1151. Later, a downside correction was initiated and the price moved below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last major wave from the $753 low to $1151 high.

Furthermore, there was a break below the $1050 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. At the moment, the price is trading near the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last major wave from the $753 low to $1151 high. Should there be a break and close below the mentioned fib level at $999, there could be more declines. The next major support is at $950 and the 50% Fib retracement level of the last major wave from the $753 low to $1151 high.
