Ether Price Analysis Chart

On the other hand, the ETH/BTC pair was seen correcting lower from the 0.090BTC resistance and it may soon test the 0.085BTC support area.

Let’s start with the 2-hour chart of ETH/USD, which is pointing to an important support area near $300.00. There are two bullish trendlines positioned on the downside at $295.00-300.00. These trendlines are holding the current bullish trend above $275.00.

A break below $295.00 would be very tough as the short-to-medium term picture is modestly positive. It will take a break below $295.00 to confirm a bearish bias, with $284.00 and $275.00 as the next supports.

To the topside, there is a connecting bearish trendline with resistance at $306.00. Buyers need to push Ether’s price above that mark in order to challenge this month’s high of $314.58. Above the mentioned $314.58, the next resistance comes at $328.00.

Ethereum ETH/USD Forecast
