Ether Price Remains Supported on Dips

Yesterday, we discussed how the ongoing ETH/USD recovery was positive with chances of more gains once the pair breaks the crucial $180.00 resistance.

Ether Price Technical Analysis Chart

The pair made a nice upside move intraday, clearing a few important barriers like $180.00 and $200.00. A new all-time high formed at $216.78 with signs of more spikes in the near term.

The 2-hour chart of ETH/USD suggests a strong bullish trend, especially considering an hourly close above the $180.00 resistance. It seems like the pair is looking for a test of the 1.236 extension of the last drop from the $211.12 high to $115.81 low.

At the moment, the pair is finding it hard to retain strength above $210.00, which might ignite a short-term correction towards $200.00-205.00. The $200.00 area is near the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the last wave from the $178.00 low to $216.00 high.

If the pair fails to hold the $200.00 support, it may spark an extended correction towards a bullish trend line at $178.00-180.00.

Ethereum ETH USD Forecast

Looking at the 6-hour chart of ETH/USD, there are three important supports to watch out. First, the $175.00-180.00 zone, which was a resistance earlier, and now may provide support. Second, the $148.00-150.00 zone, and the last one is at $125.00.

These supports can be considered as significant for the current bullish trend. In the nearest future, the short-term correction towards $200.00 remains supportive.

On the upside, further gains above $216.00 are very likely. Above $220.00, Ether price might attempt a run towards a major technical level at $240.00.
