There is a technical shift noted on the lower timeframe charts of ETH/USD, which is a not a good sign for buyers in the short term.
Ether Price Resistance
The Ether maintained its offered tone during the past few sessions against the US Dollar, and every attempt of buyers to break $11.20 failed. There was no meaningful recovery in ETH/USD beyond the $11.20-30 levels.
The 30-min chart of the ETH/USD pair points two important things. First, there was a break of a support trend line to initiate a downward move. Second, there is a bearish trend line formed, which is acting as a resistance and preventing gains.
The last three candles are back to back bearish and signaling a downside move may be towards the $11.00 level. If the bearish pressure increases, the pair might even test the all-important $10.80 support level.
For an upside move, the Ether bulls need to break the highlighted bearish trend line and surpass $11.20-30 resistance zone. If we jump to the 2-hours chart of ETH/USD, we can clearly see how important the stated resistance is.
There were many spikes, but there was no close above the highlighted resistance zone. It’s not looking good at the moment, and if the pair continues to face offers, then there is a high risk of a downside reversal. In my view, there can be one last attempt to break $11.20, which may decide the next move in ETH/USD in the short term.
