Aayush Jindal | June 8, 2018 | 5:00 am

Key Highlights

  • ETH price is struggling to clear a significant resistance near $614 against the US Dollar.
  • There is a major bullish trend line formed with support at $598 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair may continue to trade in a range before making the next move either above $614 or below $600.

Ethereum price is facing tough resistances against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD needs to gather pace above the $614 level to move further higher.

Ethereum Price Resistance

There were mostly ranging moves above the $590 level in ETH price against the US Dollar. The price traded above the $615 level recently, but it failed to break the $617 resistance. A high was formed at $617.50 before there was a downside correction. It declined below the $610 level and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $573 low to $617 high.

However, the decline was protected by the $598-600 support area. Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $573 low to $617 high also acted as a support. There is also a major bullish trend line formed with support at $598 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The 100 hourly simple moving average is also positioned near the $598 level, which is preventing declines. On the upside, the price is facing a key resistance near the $614 level. A break above the stated resistance is needed for buyers to gain traction above the $620 level.
