Technically, medium term indicators still favor an upward continuation, which can extend if there is a close above $12.00.

Ether Price Consolidation

Ether price managed to pop yesterday against the US dollar, but failed to extend gains above $12.00 handle. There was rejection noted around the stated level, pushing the price back down. The ETH/USD pair moved down, but managed to find support near the last swing low of $11.60.

Ethereum Ether Price Chart

Looking at the hourly chart of ETH/USD, there is a consolidation pattern forming with support at $11.60. On the upside, there is a short-term bearish trend line, preventing an upside break. It is like a contracting triangle pattern, which is about to break.

The chances of an upside break are more, as the $11.60 support is holding strong. If Ether bulls manage to take the price above the triangle resistance trend line, then $12.00 handle might be tested once again.

ETH Ether Price Trend Analysis

The 2-hours chart points out the reason why the possibility of an upside break is more. There is a bullish trend line formed (green), which acted as a support earlier and currently helping the bulls to prevent a downside break.

As long as the pair is above the highlighted trend line and support area, it may gain traction for a move higher. Only a break below it could encourage bears to take the pair further lower. In my view, the pair remains supported on the downside, but the bulls must not get too excited about it.
