Key Highlights
A sharp downside move in ETH/USD was quickly reversed from the $82.00-83.00 support.
The decline from $91.00 to $83.00 does not look real, and can be termed as a false break.
The ETH/BTC pair failed to recover like ETH/USD, and fell below 0.050BTC.

Technically, the hourly chart indicators are back in the bullish territory and looking to extend gains.

Ether Price Reversal

Ether Price Analysis Chart

Looking at the hourly chart of ETH/USD, there are a few important points to note:

  1. A break below the $90.00 level triggered a sharp decline with an increase in selling pressure.
  2. The pair found support at $83.00 and with the help of strong bids, recovered sharply.
  3. The candle formed near the $83.00 swing low is a picture perfect reversal pattern and suggests that the decline was a false move.
  4. The current price action is bullish and pointing continuation of the recovery.

The most significant reversal signal was a close back above $89.00-90.00. ETH/USD also broke a major bearish trend line on the hourly chart with back to back bullish candles.

Another important move was above the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the last decline from the $96.10 high to $82.99 low.

However, the pair may face sellers near $92.00-92.50 since it around the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of the last decline from the $96.10 high to $82.99 low.

Ethereum ETH USD Forecast

The 4-hour chart of ETH/USD also highlights a reversal candle, which may close as a bullish hammer for an upside move. Earlier, there was a break below a bullish trend line at $92.50, igniting losses towards $83.00.

Overall, the recent decline can be ignored considering the hourly and 4-hour chart candlestick patters. A push above $92.00 would indicate the next bullish wave for gain to $95.00.
