Aayush Jindal | March 1, 2018 | 5:00 am

Key Highlights

  • There is a connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance at $865 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via SimpleFX).
  • The pair may correct a few points in the short term, but it could face sellers near $865-870.

Ethereum price declined recently against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD now remains at a risk of more declines as long as it is below $865.

Ethereum Price Resistance

There was a minor downside wave initiated in ETH price from the $876 swing high against the US Dollar. The price declined and traded below the $860 and $862 support levels. During the downside, there was a break below a short-term bullish trend line at $863 on the hourly chart. Moreover, there was a close below the $860 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average, which is a negative sign.

A low was formed at $835 from where the price started an upside correction. It is currently testing the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $876 high to $835 low. However, the 100 hourly SMA is acting as a resistance near $852 and is prevented gains. On the upside, there is a connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance at $865 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. An intermediate resistance is the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $876 high to $835 low.
