Ether Price Analysis Chart

When we look at the market sentiment for ETH/USD, it keeps favoring Ether. There was a slow and steady uptrend during the past few hours. The best thing was the fact that the pair stayed above the $10.50 support area.

Looking at the 30-min chart of ETH/USD, there is an ascending channel pattern formed, which is why the pair remained in an uptrend.

The pair almost tested the last swing high of $10.78, but failed to gain momentum for additional gains. However, it is still inside the highlighted channel pattern, and might make another attempt to break $10.78-10.80.

On the downside, a break of the channel support trend line may take the price towards the all-important $10.50-10.40 support area. The same area also coincides with the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the last wave from the $10.17 low to $10.78 high.
