0

  • The price is now trading above $3,100 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
  • There was a break above a couple of short-term bearish trend lines at $3,000 and $3,080 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair is now facing hurdle near $3,200, above which it could accelerate further higher.

Ethereum gained pace and was able to settle above the key $3,000 resistance zone. ETH remained in a positive zone above the $3,050 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

During the increase, there was a break above a couple of short-term bearish trend lines at $3,000 and $3,080 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair even broke the $3,120 resistance level and traded to a new yearly high at $3,190.

An immediate resistance on the upside is near the $3,160 level and a connecting bearish trend line on the same chart. A clear move above the $3,160 resistance could spark another increase. The next major hurdle is near the $3,200 level. A proper break above the $3,200 level might start a move towards the $3,350 and $3,380 levels in the near term.

Dips Limited in ETH?

If ethereum fails to continue higher above $3,160 or $3,180, it could start a downside correction. An initial support on the downside is near the $3,115 level. The first major support is near the $3,080 level.

It is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $2,950 swing low to $3,190 high. A downside break below the $3,080 level might push the price further lower. The next major support is near the $3,000 level and the 100 hourly SMA, below which there is a risk of a major downside correction.
