Ethereum Price Weekly Forecast: Ether at Major Turning Point

By

Ether is trading near important pivot levels against the US dollar and bitcoin. ETH/USD daily chart is still pointing towards possible weakness in the near term.

Key Highlights

Ether’s price is holding a crucial support near $500.00 against the US dollar.
The daily chart of ETH/USD is signaling a bearish trend below the $620.00 resistance.
ETH/BTC must stay above the 0.0600BTC support to start a new upward recovery this upcoming week.

Technically, the daily chart indicators are flat in the bearish territory with consolidation signs.

Can ETH/USD Recover Above $550 and $620?

This past week was mostly bearish as ETH/USD declined to a new yearly low at $454.86. The pair remains in a bearish zone and is currently holding a major support area near $500.00.

Similarly, ETH/BTC declined heavily this past week and settled below the 0.0650BTC support. The pair is now trading near a key pivot at 0.0600BTC with resistances on the upside at 0.0620BTC and 0.0650BTC.

Ethereum Price ETH/USD Weekly Forecast

Let’s start with the daily chart of ETH/USD to understand the current trend. It seems like the price topped above the $1,400.00 level and started a downward move. During the decline, it broke a few important supports such as $1,000.00 and $750.00.

Looking at the technical structure, there is a five wave pattern in place from the $1,422.8 high. The price is currently in the fifth wave which could complete anywhere around the $450.00-500.00 zone.

To start a fresh uptrend, Ether must surpass a significant bearish trendline with a current resistance at $620.00. A successful close above that trendline resistance will most likely push the price back in a positive zone toward $750.00 in the near term.

On the downside, if the mentioned fifth wave is not complete at $454.86, there may perhaps be further declines with possibilities of a new low below $454.86.

Ether Price Weekly Analysis

Moving on to the 2-hour chart of ETH/USD, there is a contracting triangle with resistance at $530.00 and support at $500.00. The next break either above $530.00 or below $500.00 should set the path for Ether's next move.

Above $530.00, the next resistances are at $550.00, $590.00 and $620.00. On the flip side, a push below $500.00 could call for a new low below $454.86. 

Weekly Resistance Levels

$550.00 and $620.00

Weekly Support Levels

$500.00 and $450.00

Daily RSI

The RSI is currently flat near the 40 level.

Daily MACD

The MACD is placed nicely in the bearish zone.
