Ether Price Technical Analysis Chart

The ETH/USD pair still lies within a bullish trend despite ongoing consolidation above the $210.00 support. Looking at the 30-min chart, there is a solid bullish trendline forming with support near $224.00.

The trendline support is holding losses and protecting a downside break towards $210.00. Furthermore, there is a clear contracting range pattern forming with support at $223.00 and resistance near $227.00.

The recent dip in ETH/USD was well protected by the trendline and the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the last leg from the $216.24 low to $227.99 high.

The 2-hour chart shows a clear picture of the current trend. It seems like Ether’s price is approaching a crucial break since there is a contracting triangle pattern forming with resistance near $226.00.

Ethereum ETH/USD Forecast

The triangle support sits at $223.00 and holds a lot of significance in the short term. Should there be a break and close below $223.00, the price may drop back towards $210.00.

Just above $210.00, there is a connecting bullish trendline on the same chart. To the upside, an initial resistance is near $226.00-227.00 (daily high and the triangle resistance). A successful close above $226.00 followed by a break of $230.00 would signal upward strength.

The intraday outlook favors the upside with limited downsides below $210.00 ahead of the weekend.
