On the other hand, the ETH/BTC pair is facing heavy downsides as it broke a key support area at 0.070BTC. Bitcoin’s price surge is preventing gains in ETH/BTC and is also containing steady gains in ETH/USD.

Having said that, the past few sessions were bullish for ETH/USD as the pair managed to clear an important bearish trendline at $285.00 on the 4-hour chart.

The pair also settled above the 61.8 Fibonacci retracement level of the last decline from the $319.06 high to $271.36 low, which is a positive sign for further gains.

The next major resistance to the topside sits at $319.06 (this month’s high). On the downside, there is a connecting bullish trendline forming with support at $298.00 on the same chart. Looking at the current and the previous candle, the pair is likely to extend gains above $308.00 in the near term.

Ether Price Analysis Chart

When looking at the hourly chart of ETH/USD, there is a crucial ascending channel forming with support at $302.00. The channel resistance is currently at $314.00 which can be seen as a short-term reaction level.
