Ethereum Price Resistance
Ethereum price ETH after falling close to the $11.30 level against the US Dollar managed to find support and started to correct higher. During the upside move, it managed to break the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $15.10 high to $11.32 low, and traded just a few points above the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the same wave.
However, there is a major resistance positioned on the upside around the $13.50 levels, as this week’s highlighted bearish trend line on the hourly chart (data feed via Kraken) of ETH/USD is aligned with the 100 hourly simple moving average. So, it won’t be easy for the price to break the highlighted resistance area on the chart and move above it.
An initial resistance can also be around the Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $15.10 high to $11.32 low, which is just below the 100 hourly SMA. Overall, as long as the price is below the highlighted resistance area, one may consider a sell trade with a stop of a close above the 100 hourly SMA.
