Ethereum Price Upside Move
We saw yesterday how there was a sharp decline in ETH price against the US Dollar below the $10.00 support. The price extended its decline and moved below the last swing low of $9.40 to create a new low. There was a full test of the 1.236 extension of the last wave from the $9.40 low to $10.66 high. The price traded as low as $9.00 where it found support and started moving higher.
The price traded higher and during the upside move broke a bearish trend line formed on the hourly chart (data feed via SimpleFX) of ETH/USD. There was also a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $10.58 high to $9.00 low. There was a solid rise, as the price moved past the $9.40 resistance area. However, the upside move found sellers near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $10.58 high to $9.00 low.
The price is currently slightly bearish below $9.80. It needs to climb above the mentioned level for the ETH buyers to step up the momentum. If there is no break, there is a chance of a retest of $9.40 at least in the near term.
Hourly MACD – The MACD is about to move into the bullish slope.
Hourly RSI – The RSI is now back above the 50 level, which is a positive sign.
Major Support Level – $9.40
