Ether Price Analysis Chart

Looking at the 30-min chart of ETH/USD, there is a consolidation phase initiated. There are a few points to note. First, a crucial support is formed near $10.45. Second, there is a range of resistance levels, starting with $10.55, $10.60 and $10.65.

Last, it won’t be easy for the Ether buyers in the short term, as the price faces many hurdles on the way up. So, it is likely that we will witness a range pattern.

On the downside, there is an open space below $10.45, meaning there is no important support between $10.45-$10.00. So, if the price starts a proper slide, there can be a move towards $10.00.

When we look at the 2-hour chart of ETH/USD, there is a critical bearish trend line. Its resistance coincides with the range resistances at $10.60-10.65. So, it is another hurdle for the price waiting on the upside.

The highlighted resistance also coincides with the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the last decline from the $11.00 high to $10.43 low. So, if the price succeeds in clearing the stated resistance levels, it could open the doors for more gains in the near term.

On the downside, there is a clear support forming at $10.45. It can be considered as a breakout level. A break below it might take the price towards $10.20 or $10.00.
