Ether Price Analysis Chart

The ETH/USD pair consolidated for some time below the stated level before moving down. There was a dip towards the $10.60-10.50 area, which acted as a support and prevented any further losses.

The pair recovered from $10.55, and moved above the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the last decline from the $11.00 high to $10.55 low. During the upside move, the price moved above a bearish trend line formed on the 30-min chart.

However, it looks like the price is struggling to move past $10.80, which also represents the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the last decline from the $11.00 high to $10.55 low.

If the pair needs to retest $11.00, it has to break the $10.80 level. When we look at the 2-hour chart of ETH/USD, there are a few concerns. First, the chart clearly shows how there was a continuous struggle to move above $11.00.

Second, there was a break below a major connecting bullish trend line, igniting a downside move. Third, the $10.50 support area held the downside well, and currently acting as a barrier for further losses.

Overall, it looks like there are two important levels to watch out - $11.00 as a crucial resistance, and $10.50 as a major support. As long as the price holds $10.50, there is a chance of the pair attempting a move towards or above $11.00.
