Ethereum Price Buy
Ethereum price ETH after correcting lower against the US Dollar found buyers one more time, and started to move higher. There was a nice reaction around yesterday’s highlighted bullish trend line on the hourly chart (data feed via Kraken) of ETH/USD, which acted as a perfect barrier for losses.
Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $10.37 low to $16.08 high also acted as a support area along with the 100 hourly simple moving average, and pushed the price higher. Currently, the price is trading near an intermediate resistance area of $13.90-$14.00, which is preventing further gains in the short term.
I think the price may dip one more time to retest the trend line and support area of the 100 hourly SMA. In that situation, we can consider a short-term buy trade. However, the stop should be placed below the 100 hourly SMA, as a break below it may call for more losses in the near term. On the downside, the $13.00 level can be considered as a support area for ETH vs USD.
Hourly MACD – The MACD is in the bullish area, but not showing enough signs of more gains from the current levels.
Hourly RSI – The RSI is above the 50 level, which is a positive sign for the bulls.
Major Support Level – $13.00
Major Resistance Level – $14.00
