Ethereum Price Forecast: Ether Bearish Below $500

By

Guest AnalystETHNews.com

Ether is finding it difficult to recover against the US dollar and bitcoin. ETH/USD must move above the $500.00 barrier to stage a decent correction.

Key Highlights

Ether’s price remains in a downtrend with resistance at $470.00 and $500.00 against the US dollar.
There is a declining channel forming with resistance near $465.00 on the 2-hour chart of ETH/USD.
ETH/BTC is also in a bearish trend and it could extend declines toward the 0.0520BTC level.

Technically, the 2-hour chart indicators remain in the bearish territory.

ETH/USD Could Bounce

There were further declines in ETH/USD as the pair broke yesterday’s low at $448.05 and traded to a new low at $440.49. It is currently consolidating losses with a minor bullish swing.

ETH/BTC remains in a bearish zone below the 0.0600BTC level. It could extend the current decline toward the next key support around 0.0520BTC.

Ether Price Analysis Chart

Looking at the 30-minute chart of ETH/USD, there was a short-term bottom formed at $440.4 before the pair started an upward move and traded above $450.00. There was also a break above the 23.6 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the last drop from the $495.00 swing high to $440.49 low. It is currently following a bullish trendline with support near $454.00.

On the upside, there is a major resistance forming near the $470.00 level. It prevented gains on many occasions and it will most likely continue to do so.

A successful close above the $470.00 resistance could push the price toward the next hurdle at $500.00. An intermediate resistance is around the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the last drop from the $487.00 swing high to $440.49 low.

Ethereum Price ETH/USD Forecast

Moving up to the 2-hour chart of ETH/USD, there is a declining channel with resistance around $460.00-465.00. A bearish break below the $450.00 level will most likely ignite a fresh downward wave toward $440.00 and $420.00.
