Ethereum Price Trend
Ethereum price ETH continued to gain traction and moved above the all-important $12.00 resistance area against the US Dollar. Yesterday, I highlighted the importance of the 100 hourly simple moving average and the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave up from the $10.83 low to $12.03 high. I was hoping them to act as a buy zone and provide bids.
Both the stated area provided support and pushed the price higher. There is a now a bullish trend line formed on the hourly chart (data feed via Kraken) of ETH/USD, which is acting as a catalyst for the upside move and helping buyers. The price recently traded as high as $12.86, and currently correcting lower.
On the downside, the trend line along with the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $10.84 low to $12.86 high may act as a support zone. As long as the price is above the stated support area, there is a chance of more gains in the near term. A break below the trend line may take the price towards the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $10.84 low to $12.86 high may act as a support zone.
Hourly MACD – The MACD is in the bullish zone, calling for more gain in ETH.
Hourly RSI – The RSI is also above the 50 level, which is a bullish sign.
Major Support Level – $12.10
Major Resistance Level – $12.60
