Aayush Jindal | March 14, 2018 | 5:00 am

Key Highlights

  • There is a connecting bullish trend line forming with current support at $685 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair has to move above the 100 hourly simple moving average and $710 to gain traction.

Ethereum price is slowly rising higher against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD may climb higher in the near term above the $710 level.

Ethereum Price Resistance

Yesterday, there was a downside move, but it was contained by the $677 level in ETH price against the US Dollar. The price was seen struggling, but buyers succeeded in preventing any major breakdown towards $620. A low was formed at $677 recently and the price is currently correcting higher. It has moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $739 high to $677 low.

However, there are many barriers on the upside for buyers around $708-710. The 100 hourly simple moving average is positioned near $710. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $739 high to $677 low is at $708. Therefore, a break above the $708-710 is needed for buyers to gain upside momentum in the near term. Above $710, the next major resistance is near $735 and $737. The stated $735 level acted as a resistance on many occasions, and it may continue to prevent gains.
