Ether Price Analysis
After forming a short term top at $126.78, ETH/USD started a downward move. The pair broke the $120.00 and $115.00 support levels and now it is struggling to stay above the $111.00-112.00 support zone.
ETH/BTC recovered recently and moved back above the 0.0280BTC support. However, the pair seems to be finding hard to climb above the 0.0284BTC and 0.0285BTC resistance, which may result in a bearish reaction.
Looking at the 2-hour chart of ETH/USD, the pair remains in a steady downtrend from the $126.78 high. The pair settled below the $120.00 support and the 23.6 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the last recovery from the $101.69 low to $126.78 high.
The price is currently trading near the $112.00 support and the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the last recovery. If there is a successful 2-hour close below $111.00-112.00, the price may dive toward the $105.00 or $102.00 level.
To the topside, there are two bearish trendlines in place with resistance near $120.00, above which Ether could move back in a positive zone. Dropping down to the 30-minute chart of ETH/USD, the pair is forming an expanding range with resistance near $114.00 and support at $111.00.
Should Ether’s price move past the $114.00 resistance, it could find a solid selling interest near the $115.50 level. The current price action is clearly bearish on the 2-hour chart, but there are a few positive signs on the 30-minute chart. Having said that, the price must bounce back above $115.00 to reduce chances of a bearish break below $111.00.
