Ethereum Price Technical Analysis – Can ETH/USD Break 100 SMA?

Aayush Jindal | April 3, 2018 | 5:00 am

Key Highlights

  • ETH price is currently consolidating losses with a slight bullish angle above $375 against the US Dollar.
  • There is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance at $392 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair has to move above the $395 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average to gain upside momentum.

Ethereum price is currently consolidating losses against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD must pierce the 100 hourly SMA to remain in a positive zone.

Ethereum Price Upside Barrier

There was a decent support formed above the $350 level in ETH price against the US Dollar. The price started an upside correction and traded above the $375 level. It also succeeded in moving past the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $465 high to $360 low. However, the upside wave is currently facing a major barrier near the $392-395 levels.

It seems like the 100 hourly simple moving average is acting as a key resistance near $395. Moreover, there is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance at $392 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Above the trend line resistance, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $405 high to $360 low is near the $400 level. A break and close above the trend line resistance, $395 and the 100 hourly SMA may open the doors for more gains. The next resistance could be the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $405 high to $360 low at $425.
