Ethereum Price Resistance
There was no stopping the Eth bears as they took Ethereum price further lower against the US Dollar. A new weekly low was formed at $9.30 where buyers appeared and managed to push the price a few points higher. However, there are now several important resistances on the upside, which may impact the price in the short term.
On the upside, there are a couple of bearish trend lines formed on the hourly chart (data feed via Kraken) of ETH/USD, which may play a crucial role in protecting the upside move. First, there is a minor bearish trend line positioned at $10.80. Second, an upper bearish trend line, the one we followed this whole week. The upper bearish trend line may act as a major hurdle for the bulls in the short term.
The most important point is that there are a couple of things aligned at $11.20 like the bearish trend line and the 100 hourly simple moving average. So, we can say that the stated level is a major offer zone where the bears might appear if the price attempts to move higher.
Hourly MACD – The MACD has moved into the bullish zone, but may again go into the bearish slope.
Hourly RSI – The RSI managed to bounce from the oversold reading, which is the only positive sign.
Major Support Level – $10.00
Major Resistance Level – $11.20
