Ether Price Analysis Chart

There was an attempt for another upside push, but the $13.00 mark proved to be a crucial resistance, as it prevented further gains. As a result, the price was confined in the $13.00-$12.50 range.

There are three waves already in the current correction, and it looks like it’s not over yet. If the ETH/USD pair continues to struggle near $13.00, there can be a deeper correction.

On the downside, the $12.50 support is holding losses at the moment. It represents the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level of the last wave from the $11.24 low to $13.38 high.

So, a break below $12.50 might call for additional downsides with a possibility of a move towards $12.20. When we look at the 2-hour chart, the importance of $12.50 is clearly visible.

Ethereumm ETH/USD Forecast

There is a flag formation with support at $12.50. The flag looks like a bullish formation, but the rejection candle near $13.38 is eye-catching. There is long tail formed, which generally means the price failed, and it’s a major hurdle.

We can say there are mixed signals, and the next move in ETH/USD might depend on the next break. If the price succeeds in moving above the $13.00 resistance, there can be a retest of $13.38.

Otherwise, a failure and break below $12.50 may call for a deeper pullback.

2-hour RSI
