Ethereum Price Support
Ethereum price ETH traded higher during the past 24 hours against the US Dollar and posted a new intraday high of $11.34. There was a solid buying interest noted for the ETH, which helped it to gain traction against the USD. The price after trading above the $11.00 level started consolidating, and may correct a few points lower before it can move back higher.
At this moment, there is a resistance trend line formed on the hourly chart (data feed via Kraken) of ETH/USD, acting as a barrier for further gains above the $11.20-30 levels. So, there is a chance of a minor dip in the near term. An immediate support on the downside can be around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $$8.85 low to $11.34 high.
However, the most important support on the downside can be around the 100 hourly simple moving average, as it is also aligned with the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $$8.85 low to $11.34 high. One may consider entering a buy trade, but with a tight stop. A break below the $10.00 support area may trigger further losses in ETH/USD.
Hourly MACD – The MACD is in the bullish zone, but may move soon in the bearish zone.
Hourly RSI – The RSI is also above the 50 level, which is a positive sign.
Major Support Level – $10.40
Major Resistance Level – $11.35
