Ether Price Weekly Analysis Chart

In contrast, the ETH/BTC pair was under constant bearish pressure this past week due to Bitcoin price rising above $4,000. Ether moved down and is currently trading above an important support at 0.070BTC and consolidating losses.

Looking at the 4-hour chart of ETH/USD, there is a crucial support forming near $280.00. A couple of bullish trendlines and a horizontal support is positioned at that vary level. Below the mentioned $280.00, the monthly support and pivot sits at $275.00.

Therefore, it is important for Ether’s price to stay above the $275.00-280.00 support area to recover during the upcoming week.

On the upside, there is a connecting bearish trendline forming with resistance at $303.00. A successful close above $303.00 and $305.00 would set the tone for further upsides in the short term.

It seems like the pair is forming a lower low and lower high pattern. The recent lower high was near $310.00 from which the price corrected lower.

Once the pattern is complete, the price would continue its uptrend and move higher. In the stated scenario, the chances of ETH/USD crossing the recent high of $319.06 are very high.
