Ether Price Important Trend Line Support
Ether’s stance remains bullish in the near term versus all majors like the US Dollar and Bitcoin. The recent continuous gains in both ETH/USD and ETH/BTC is a great signal for buyers looking to take Ether price to new highs.
The ETH/USD pair recently broke a major hurdle at $349.00-350.00, which opened the doors for $30.00-50.00 ride. The pair took out a monster resistance at $400.00 to trade at a new all-time high of $414.66.
Later, a correction wave was initiated, as the pair moved below the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the last wave from the $338.00 low to $414.00 high.
There was a test of the $360.00 level where a bullish trend line on the 30-min chart prevented downsides. Furthermore, the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of the last wave from the $338.00 low to $414.00 high acted as a short-term support.
A crucial support rests at $350.00 in the form of a resistance. Ether price is once again moving higher and looking to settle above $400.00. It won’t be easy, but considering the current momentum, there is even a possibility of a new high above $420.00 during the upcoming sessions.
Looking at the 2-hour chart, the current candle formation is a half bearish outside pattern, which might produce short-term declines.
A lot depends on a close above $390.00. Should it materialize, ETH/USD may look to extend gains above $400.00 in the near term.
To sum it up, ETH/USD may surprise sellers, and if the present sentiment remains for extended time, $500.00 ETH could be in the cards.
