Ether Price Analysis Chart

Looking at the hourly chart, the pair bounced perfectly from a bullish trendline at $280.00. The pair resumed its uptrend and broke a connecting bearish trendline at $297.50.

It is currently following a bullish trendline with support at $297.00 and eyes a proper close above the $300.00 handle. Considering the fact that the price is above the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the last decline from the $314.58 high to $278.72 low, the pair might continue to trade higher.

If buyers remain in control, the pair may soon retest the recent high of $314.58. On the downside, the first bullish trendline at $297.00 is an initial support. The next major buy zone is near the second bullish trendline with current support at $284.00.

Ethereum ETH/USD Forecast

Moving on to the 4-hour chart of ETH/USD, the recent rejection near $280.00 was from a crucial bullish trendline. If the trendline continues to protect losses, the pair would remain in an uptrend.
