Ether Price Weekly Analysis Chart

When we look at a higher timeframe chart like the 12-hour chart, there is a clear bullish break visible. A bearish trend line on the same chart was cleared to open the doors for more gains at $7.30.

Moreover, there was a break above the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $10.24 high to $5.94 low. These signs are positive, and suggesting that the price may now move higher in the near term.

The chart also shows the importance of the $7.00 support. The price formed a base near the mentioned support and moved higher. The upside move was just shy of the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $10.24 high to $5.94 low.

Considering the 2-hour chart of ETH/USD, there is a crucial resistance at $8.50-8.55. There are two failed attempts already. On the downside, the $8.00 support is holding declines and acting as a barrier for Ether sellers.
