Ether Price Testing Important Support

Ether Price Analysis Chart

Yesterday, we were looking for Ether price to settle above $93.00 for a move towards $98.00-100.00, but it failed to hold on to the bullish momentum.

The hourly chart of ETH/USD clearly points a rejection near $96.10, as the pair tumbled. It fell below the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the last wave from the $88.63 low to $96.10 high to initiate a downside move.

During the downside move, the pair surpassed a bullish trend line at $93.80, which further added to the bearish pressure. At the moment, a monster support is at risk just below $92.00.

The $92.00 support represents a confluence zone of a bullish trend line and horizontal line. It is also near the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the last wave from the $88.63 low to $96.10 high.

A drop and close below $92.00 might not be good for the current trend, however, it is likely that ETH/USD will hold and resist such drop. Even if there is a dip below the stated level, there is another crucial support waiting on the downside at $90.00-89.00.

Ethereum ETH USD Forecast

The 4-hour chart of ETH/USD points to a significant horizontal support area at $90.00-89.00, which can be considered as weekly pivot.

Nevertheless, the pair has breached a bearish trend line on the same chart at $91.00, and since it is above $90.00, there are chances of a bounce back in the near term.
