Ether Price to Bounce Again?

Ether has consolidated its gains against the US dollar, as the price had retreated down to the $200.00 mark on Thursday morning.

Ether Price Technical Analysis Chart

The ETH/USD pair failed to hold the $225.00 support area and the 23.6 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the last leg from the $133.79 low to $256.08 high. It prompted an extended correction and Ether’s price slipped below $200.00.

During the downside move, the pair broke a bullish trendline with support at $215.00 on the 2-hour chart. Later, the price recovered and is currently positioned well above the $200.00 support. There was a complete test of the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the last leg from the $133.79 low to $256.08 high.

At the moment, the price is forming yet another breakout pattern on the 2-hour chart with resistance near a bearish trendline at $215.00. The trendline is also positioned around the 38.2 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the decline from the $256.08 high to $187.40 low.

On the downside, the $200.00 support holds the key. A close on either side ($215.00 or $200.00) could trigger the next move in ETH/USD.

Ethereum ETH USD Forecast

Moving on to the 6-hour chart of ETH/USD, the pair is placed well above the broken trendline at $190.00-195.00. On the upside, the recent rejection was from $250.00 (previous support now resistance).

To summarize, the price might consolidate above $200.00 for some time before attempting an upside break above $215.00 and $225.00 to retest $240.00. On the other hand, a daily close below $200.00 could again put Ether’s price back in the bearish zone.
