Ethereum Price Explosion Ahead?
As we all know, Ethereum 4th Hard Fork is lined up, and it may cause a lot of action in the price. There was no real move during the past 24 hours in ETH/USD and ETH/BTC, and the price mostly traded in a range. Yesterday, I highlighted a bearish trend line on the hourly chart (data feed via SimpleFX) of ETH/USD. It was broken recently, but it cannot be considered as a break, as there was no real momentum after it.
The upside move is continuously finding offers near the 100 hourly simple moving average. It is acting as a major hurdle and preventing gains. Moreover, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the decline from the $10.04 high to $9.29 low is also stopping the buyers from taking the price higher. The most important range resistance is near $9.60. It is a monster resistance, and may be considered as a breakout level. It is also coinciding with the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the decline from the $10.04 high to $9.29 low.
If the ETH buyers fail to take the price higher, then a break below the range support at $9.30 may be very deadly for ETH/USD in the short term.
Hourly MACD – The MACD is currently flat, showing range moves.
Hourly RSI – The RSI is just around the 50 level but with no clear bias.
Major Support Level – $9.30
Major Resistance Level – $9.60
