Ether Price Technical Analysis

The pair failed to clear $180.00. It attempted twice to surpass the stated level, but was unsuccessful, and later moved down sharply below $150.00.

The hourly chart highlights a major drop from $180.00 to $140.00. The downside gained pace with three outside, down bearish patterns. A new intraday low was formed just below $140.00 before the pair found support and started a recovery.

ETH/USD moved above the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level of the last drop from the $180.23 high to $136.18 low. At the moment, a bearish trend line at $165.00 is preventing further upsides.

The trend line resistance is just around the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of the last drop from the $180.23 high to $136.18 low. It clearly holds a lot of importance, and Ether buyers may struggle to break it in one attempt.

When we look at the 4-hour chart of ETH/USD, there are two key bullish trend lines positioned above $130.00. The recent drop from $180.00 found support near these trend lines.

Ethereum ETH USD Forecast

On the upside, the $180.00 resistance may continue to play a major role for the next move in Ether price. It can be considered as a barrier for ETH/USD before it attempts a test of $200.00. Once buyers pierce $180.00, $200.00 is very likely.

On the downside, we need to keep a close watch on the H4 trend lines near $130.00. As long as $125.00 is intact, we may witness a short-term consolidation, followed by an attempt to break $180.00.
