Ethereum Price Analysis: Can ETH/USD Make It?

Aayush Jindal | July 13, 2018 | 5:00 am

Key Highlights

  • ETH price declined further and traded as low as $417.37 against the US Dollar.
  • This week’s highlighted key bearish trend line is still active with resistance at $438 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair has to move above the trend line and $440 resistance to recover further in the near term.

Ethereum price is slowly moving higher against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD must clear hurdles near $440 to gains upside traction towards $460.

Ethereum Price Resistance

There were further dips in ETH price below the $430 level against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair declined below the $428 swing low and formed a new weekly low near the $417 level. Later, there was a decent comeback and the price jumped above the $425 level. The price also managed to move above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $448 high to $417 low.

However, the price is currently facing a tough challenge near the $440 level. Additionally, this week’s highlighted key bearish trend line is preventing upsides near $438 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. More importantly, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $448 high to $417 low is also near the $440 level. Therefore, a break above the trend line and then $440 is required for buyers to take the price further higher. Above $440, the next resistance is near $445 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
