ETH/USD Forecast: What’s Stopping Ethereum Price?





Ether remained in a tight range against the US dollar. ETH/USD really needs to gather pace, otherwise, it remains at a risk of a sharp decline below $275.00.

Key Highlights

Upsides in Ether’s price remain capped by a strong resistance near $300.00 against the US dollar.
A major bearish trendline with resistance at $295.00 on the 6-hour chart of ETH/USD is stopping an upside break.
ETH/BTC was up more than 1.5 percent and broke the 0.073BTC resistance.

Technically, the 2-hour chart indicators are flat in the bullish territory.

Ether Price Resistance Levels

The ETH/USD pair made no progress during the past three sessions and traded in a range above the $275.00 support. The next break seems to be much bigger, considering the ongoing consolidation.

Ether Price Analysis Chart

The 6-hour chart of ETH/USD has a major bearish trendline with current resistance near $295.00, which is the main hurdle for more gains.

A successful breach of the trendline followed by $300.00 would be huge, and the pair could move higher by more than 10 percent.

On the other hand, a continuous struggle to break higher would result in a drop below the $275.00 support. The next major support in the mentioned scenario sits at $250.00 and the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the last wave from the $200.91 low to $300.37 high.

The 2-hour chart of ETH/USD is pointing a clear range pattern with support at $276.00-$275.00, and resistance near $300.00. In addition, an intermediate hurdle awaits around a bearish trendline with current resistance at $290.00.

Ethereum Price ETH/USD Forecast

Short-term, Ether’s price presents a neutral-to-bearish stance, as in the 2-hour chart, ETH/USD is trapped between $275.00-$290.00. An upward extension beyond $290.00 should favor a minor bullish continuation towards the $295.00 region where selling interest will likely reject the advance.

While another attempt higher towards $300.00 is not ruled out, the success rate to take out such a crucial resistance is diminishing. That said, only a move below $275.00 (weekly pivot) would indicate that the positive bias that started from $200.91 has ended.

2-Hour MACD

The MACD is flat with no sign of near-term break.

2-Hour RSI

The RSI is stable near the 50 level.

Important Support Levels

$275.00 and $265.00

Important Resistance Levels

$295.00 and $300.00
