Ether Price Analysis Chart

The 30-min chart shows that the pair remained capped near $11.40, and even after several attempts, there was no break. As a result, there was a downside move, and the pair fell to $11.20.

During the slide, the pair broke a bullish trend line at $11.32, and formed a nice bearish candle. However, the $11.20 support area is important, the pair succeeded in holding it, but the risk is far from over.

When we move on to the 2-hour chart of ETH/USD, there is a clear resistance visible at $11.35-11.40. A bearish trend line and the previous swing failures have formed a confluence resistance.

The pair is moving down, and currently attempting a close below a bullish trend line with support at $11.25. In my view, we should consider the $11.20 support as more valuable. A break below it could ignite further losses that may take the price towards $11.00.

Ethereum ETH/USD Forecast

A close below $11.20 would also mean a break of the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the last wave from the $10.62 low to $11.41 high. In that case, a test of the 11.00 is possible.

On the upside, the $11.40 resistance holds the key. A close above it is needed to avoid any further declines.

$11.40 and $11.60

Important Support Levels
