Ethereum Price Buy
Ethereum price ETH surged higher against the US Dollar and posted a critical break intraday (as forecasted in yesterday’s post). The price traded as high as $12.03 after the break where the bears appeared to defend any further gains. During the upside move, there was a break above yesterday’s highlighted bearish trend line on the hourly chart (data feed via Kraken) of ETH/USD.
No doubt, the recent break in the ETH/USD pair is convincing, as the price settled above the 100 hourly simple moving average and also cleared the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $12.20 high to $10.85 low. Currently, the price is correcting lower, but it may find support on the downside, especially around the 100 hourly SMA and the broken trend line.
Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave up from the $10.83 low to $12.03 high may also act as a major support area for the bulls. On the upside, the $11.60 level can be seen as an immediate resistance, followed by the recent high of $12.03. I think buying dips may be considered as long as the price is above the 100 hourly SMA.
Hourly MACD – The MACD is in the bullish zone, signaling positive signs in the near term.
Hourly RSI – The RSI is above the 50 level, which is another bullish signal.
Major Support Level – $11.30
Major Resistance Level – $11.60
