Ether Price Analysis
ETH/USD made another attempt to surpass the $160.00 resistance. However, the pair failed to test $160.00 and retreated after forming an intraday high at $157.02. The $148.00 support could hold losses, but a failure will most likely initiate a fresh bearish wave.
ETH/BTC also started a downside correction and traded below the 0.0380BTC support. The pair is currently under pressure and it seems like it may continue to move down toward the 0.0270BTC and 0.0265BTC supports.
Looking at the 2-hour chart of ETH/USD, the pair spiked above the $155.00 level, but there was no clear close. Ether declined and settled below the $155.00 level, resulting in a bearish structure. On the upside, there is a strong resistance formed near $155.00 and a connecting bearish trendline.
To recover in the near term, the price must settle above the $155.00 barrier. On the flip side, if sellers remain in action, the price is likely to revisit the main support at $148.00.
The 30-minute chart of ETH/USD suggests a bearish structure below $155.00 and $154.00. The price recently broke the $154.00 support and the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the upward move from the $148.77 low to $157.02 high.
Ether seems to be heading toward the $150.50 and $149.00 supports, below which it could find a strong buying interest near $148.00. Should sellers succeed in clearing $148.00, the price might head toward $140.00.
Overall, ETH/USD offers a neutral-to-bearish short-term stance in its 2-hour chart, as sellers keep defending the upside toward $160.00. The pair could gain further downward traction on a break below $148.00, with the next relevant support being $140.00.
