Aayush Jindal | March 12, 2018 | 5:00 am

Key Highlights

  • ETH price formed a bottom near $650 and moved higher above $700 against the US Dollar.
  • There is a key breakout pattern forming with resistance at $730 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair must break and settle above $730 and $750 to gain upside momentum in the near term.

Ethereum price started a nice upside move against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD could rise further if it manages an hourly close above $730-750.

Ethereum Price Resistance

After a major downside move, there was a support base formed near $750 in ETH price against the US Dollar. The price started an upside move and traded above the $680 and $700 resistance levels. It even settled above the $700 level, which is a positive sign. A high was formed at $737 from where the price started consolidating in a range pattern.

It already tested the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $651 low to $737 high.  It seems like there is a key breakout pattern forming with resistance at $730 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair may continue to trade inside the triangle with support at $710. If the price fails to hold the $710 support, the next support could be $690. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $651 low to $737 high is near $694 to act as a support.
