Technically, the hourly chart indicators started moving away from the bearish territory and reaching their mid-lines.

Ether Price Forming a Double Bottom?

Yesterday Ether price made an attempt to trade above the $45.10 resistance against the US Dollar, but failed. A crucial bearish trend line with resistance near $45.10 acted as a perfect barrier for the ETH/USD pair, resulting in a downside move.

Ether Price Technical Analysis

However. the downside move was prevented around the $41.50 level. There was no test of the last swing low at $41.12, which is a positive sign.

As the pair recovered, Ether price bounced sharply above a bearish trend line on the hourly chart with resistance at $42.50. The candle breaking the trend line resistance looks solid, suggesting a strong rejection from the swing low.

In my view, there is likely a double bottom pattern forming on the hourly chart around $41.20. Two swing lows are formed above $41.00, resulting in an upside move.

The price has already broken a major hurdle, and now needs to clear the $45.00 resistance to gain pace for further gains. The mentioned resistance also represents the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of the last decline from the $47.26 high to $41.20 low.

Ethereum ETH/USD Forecast

If the price succeeds in breaking $45.00, there can be a retest of $47.50, which is another important resistance. A close above $49 is must for sustained monthly gains in ETH/USD.

Looking at the 4-hour chart, the pair is attempting a close above a bearish trend line at $43.50-44.00. On the upside, another trend line is waiting near $47.00. The price is showing positive signs with a double bottom pattern near $41.20, but faces many hurdles on the way up.
