Key Highlights

  • ETH price is in trouble as it moved below the $1060 support and traded towards $1000 support against the US Dollar.
  • There is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance at $1105 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via SimpleFX).
  • The pair might correct higher in the short term, but upsides could be contained by the $1090-1105 levels.

Ethereum price declined sharply against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD is currently holding the $1000 support, but it remains at a risk of more declines.

Ethereum Price Upside Hurdle

There was no upside break in ETH price above the $1140 level against the US Dollar. The price faced a lot of selling pressure, which pushed it lower below the $1100 level. The decline was such that the price traded below the $1050 and $1040 support levels as well. It traded close to the $1000 level and formed a low at $1011. At the moment, the price is correcting higher and is above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1160 high to $1011 low.

There are many resistances on the upside around the $1070 and $1080 levels. An important hurdle is around the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1160 high to $1011 low at $1085. Moreover, there is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance at $1105 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The trend line resistance is just above the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1160 high to $1011 low at $1085.
