Aayush Jindal | September 27, 2018 | 6:30 am

Key Highlights

  • ETH price is slowly recovering, but there are many hurdles on the upside near $224-225 against the US Dollar.
  • There is a short-term ascending channel in place with support at $214 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair must stay above the $213 and $210 levels to recover further towards the $224 level.

Ethereum price is struggling to gain traction against the US Dollar and bitcoin. ETH/USD is likely to face a strong selling interest near the $224 level.

Ethereum Price Analysis

Recently, we saw a decent buying interest near the $204 level in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair started an upward recovery and moved above the $210 level. There was also a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent slide from the $245 high to $204 swing low. However, the upside move was capped by the $222-224 zone and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

The price is currently under pressure below $224 and the 100 hourly SMA, and is testing the previous resistance at $213. There is also a short-term ascending channel in place with support at $214 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. As long as the pair is above the channel support, there could be more gains above the $220 level. However, the $224 level is a significant resistance. It coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent slide from the $245 high to $204 swing low. Above the $224 level, there is a bearish trend line in place with resistance at $232 on the same chart.
