Ether Price is Showing Bullish Signs

Ether Price Analysis Chart

It seems like the recent decline in ETH/BTC is putting a lot of pressure on ETH/USD buyers. Looking at the 30-minute chart of ETH/USD, there was a decent ride from the $295.41 low to $304.74.

The pair failed to retain gains above the $304.00 level and started a downside correction. There is a bearish trendline forming with resistance at $302.00 which is protecting gains.

On the downside, the $298.00-300.00 area is a short-term support zone along with the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the last wave from the $295.41 low to $304.74 high.

Should there be a close below $298.00, the price could head back towards $295.50. However, the 2-hour chart of ETH/USD is showing a lot of positive signs. There is a connecting bullish trendline forming with support at $298.00.

Ethereum Price ETH/USD Forecast

Furthermore, there is another crucial support forming near $288.00. To the topside, the pair is facing two important resistances - $305.00 and $310.00. A successful close above the mentioned resistances is required for Ether to gain further momentum towards $340.00.

The current price action is positive and a broad consolidation in ETH/USD is favored, but a bullish bias suggests that retracement pullbacks should be relatively limited.

An immediate support is near $298.00, below which Ether is likely to test $295.50. The most important trend support is now at $288.00.
