Ethereum Price Technical Analysis – Can ETH/USD Hold $360?

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

Key Highlights

  • ETH price failed to gain traction and declined back towards the last swing low near $360 against the US Dollar.
  • There was a break below a major ascending channel with support at $395 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair is trading near the $362 and $360 support levels, and it remains at a risk of more declines.

Ethereum price is struggling to hold important supports against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD could even break the $360 level for more losses in the near term.

Ethereum Price Support

Yesterday, there was a tiny upside move above $400 in ETH price against the US Dollar. However, the price failed to gain traction and started a downside move from well above $405. It declined and broke the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last upside wave from the $360 low to $417 high. It opened the doors for more losses and the price moved below the $400 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

During the downside, there was a break below a major ascending channel with support at $395 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. These are negative signs below the $395 resistance. At the moment, the price is trading near the last swing low of $360. It may correct higher towards the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last downside wave from the $418 high to $364 low. If the price fails to correct higher, it could even break the $364 low. However, a break below the $360 level could open the doors for more losses.
