Ether Price Analysis Chart

We followed an important range pattern in Ether price with resistance at $12.80 against the US Dollar. During the recent upside drift, the price was able to clear the mentioned range resistance.

More importantly, there was a close above a crucial bearish trend line at $12.70 on the 2-hour chart. It kind of opened the doors for further gains and made the buyers’ job easy in pushing the price above $12.80.

There was even a break above $13.00, which was critical, and suggests that the recent break might not be a false move. A new weekly high at $13.20 was formed before the ETH/USD pair faced offers.

A correction is underway at the moment, and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the last wave from the $12.91 low to $13.20 high was already tested. There is a chance of an extension towards the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level of the same wave.

Ethereum ETH/USD Forecast

The broken resistance at $12.80 might now act as a support and can be considered as a buy zone in the short term. When we look at the 6-hour chart of ETH/USD, there was a clear upside break above a bearish trend line at $12.75.

Overall, the recent break looks convincing, and points towards a positive direction. Going forward, as long as the price stays above $12.80, there is a chance of a move towards the Feb 14th high of $13.38.
