Ethereum Price Weekly Analysis – ETH/USD Upsides Remain Capped

Aayush Jindal | April 1, 2018 | 4:08 am

Key Highlights

  • ETH price is currently recovering, but upsides remain capped by the $460 level against the US Dollar.
  • There is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance at $460 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair may correct a few points in the near term, but it will most likely face sellers near $450-460.

Ethereum price is under huge selling pressure against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD is likely to extend declines once the current correction is complete.

Ethereum Price Resistance

There were heavy declines this past week in ETH price from well above the $550 level against the US Dollar. The price fell sharply and broke many supports such as $500 and $400. It traded as low as $362 from where a minor upside correction was initiated. It tested the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $595 high to $362 low.

However, the upside move could not gain momentum above the $415-417 zone. There is also a major bearish trend line forming with resistance at $460 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD. The same trend line is close to the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $595 high to $362 low. A break and close above the $460 level could clear the path for an upside move. The next hurdle could be the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $595 high to $362 low near $475.

On the downside, the recent low near $362 is a decent support. If the price fails to stay above the mentioned $362 level, there could be more losses towards the $350 level. Further below $350, the next stop could be the $320 level.

4-hours MACD – The MACD is slightly showing recovery signs in the bearish zone.

4-hours RSI – The RSI is currently well below the 40 level.

Major Support Level – $362

Major Resistance Level – $460

    The pop up advertisments that block what I’m trying to read will cause me to actively avoid returning to this website. Its honestly annoying AF and short sighted if you want a respectable following.

    I assume your writers deserve the chance to have readers get through the first sentence before some cheap BS click bait locks and blocks their screen?
    Let your product sell itself and the advertisements follow, not the other way around. Stop being greedy
