Key Highlights

  • ETH price extended its decline and traded to a new weekly low at $415.54 against the US Dollar.
  • There is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $435 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair is in a bearish zone and it could extend its decline towards the $405-410 levels in the near term.

Ethereum price is struggling to recover against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD may perhaps decline further below the $415 low if buyers continue to struggle.

Ethereum Price Upside Hurdle

There was a rejection noted around the $446 level in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair failed to break resistance and declined back below $430. There was a break below the $425 and $420 support levels. As a result, there was a new low formed at $415.54 and the price is currently in a bearish zone. An initial resistance is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $450 high to $415 low.

If there is a break above $423, the price could extend gains towards the $430 level. On the upside, there is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $435 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The same trend line is positioned with the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $450 high to $415 low. Therefore, the price is likely to face a strong resistance near the $430-435 zone. A break above this could push the price towards the $445 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
