Ether Price to Break $51 Soon?

Yesterday, we analyzed how Ether price was forming a base against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. It looks like it managed to build on the recent bullish momentum to continue further gains.

Ether Price Technical Analysis Chart

After breaking the $50.00 hurdle, the ETH/USD pair still struggled to clear the all-important $51.00 resistance. There were few attempts, but no success as of yet.

The current momentum and bias are very bullish, making the $51.00 target a real possibility. 

The hourly chart of ETH/USD clearly highlights the significance of that $51.00 resistance. A possible break could signal a run towards $54.00.

Also, there is a chance of a test of the 1.236 extension of the last drop from the $50.92 high to $41.12 low. On the downside, there is a bullish trend line with support at $50.60 formed on the same chart. In case there is a dip, the price may find support near $50.60.

The 4-hour chart also points a similar picture to the hourly chart. There is a clear major barrier at $51.00, preventing further upsides. On the downside, there are two bullish trend lines with support at $48.00 and $45.00 respectively.

In my view, there is a great chance of ETH/USD breaking higher above $51.00. Even if a dip materializes, the pair remains supported.
