0

Ethereum Price Faces Key Barrier

Ethereum started a decent upward move from the $880 support zone. ETH climbed above the $950 and $1,000 levels to move into a short-term bullish zone.

The bulls pushed the price above the 50% Fib retracement level of the key decline from the $1,255 swing high to $880 low. Finally, there was a move above the $1,100 level. However, ether price is now facing a major resistance near the $1,150 and $1,160 levels.

The price is now trading above $1,000 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It is also above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $880 swing low to $1,174 high.

Besides, there is also a short-term contracting triangle forming with resistance near $1,150 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. An immediate resistance is near the $1,150 level. The next major resistance is near the $1,160 zone. A clear move above the $1,160 resistance zone may perhaps start a steady upward move.

The next major resistance is near the $1,260 level. Any more gains could start a move towards the $1,350 resistance in the near term.

Fresh Decline in ETH?

If ethereum fails to rise above the $1,150 resistance, it could start a fresh decline. An initial support on the downside is near the $1,100 zone and the triangle lower trend line.

The next major support is near the $1,030 zone. It is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $880 swing low to $1,174 high. Any more losses might call for a move towards the $950 support zone.
