Technically, the 2-hour chart indicators are currently near midlines in the bullish territory.
Ether Price Analysis
There was a decent support formed near the $269.00-270.00 zone in ETH/USD, resulting in a sharp upward move. ETH/USD climbed above the $290.00 resistance zone, but buyers were unsuccessful in clearing the $300.00 hurdle.
ETH/BTC traded below the 0.0450BTC support and is currently trading in a range. It seems like the price may continue to move down toward the 0.0415BTC support.
Looking at the 2-hour chart of ETH/USD, the pair traded above the $285.00 and $290.00 resistance levels. There was also a break above the 38.2 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the last decline from the $321.12 high to $269.41 low.
More importantly, there was also a break above a bearish trendline at $289.00, but there was no 2-hour close. Ether’s price failed to settle above $295.00 and the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the last decline.
There was a reversal pattern formed near the $300.00 level and the price traded below the $290.00 level. Moving down to the 30-minute chart of ETH/USD, the pair tested the broken resistance at $280.00-281.00.
It seems like there is a connecting bullish trendline forming with current support at $284.00. Should Ether climb higher once again, it must break the $290.00 and $295.00 resistance levels. The final important challenge for buyers is near the $300.00 level.
On the flip side, the price needs to stay above the $280.00 support area to continue higher. If not, there is a risk of more losses toward the $270.00 support.
