Ethereum Weekly Forecast: Ether Buyers Are Back!

By

Guest AnalystETHNews.com

Ether is grinding higher against the US Dollar while consolidating versus bitcoin. ETH/USD buyers are back in control, increasing chances of a break above $313.00.

Key Highlights

Ether is showing numerous bullish signs, holding a daily close above $300.00 against the US Dollar.
There is a bullish contracting triangle forming with support at $298.00-300.00 on the daily chart of ETH/USD.
ETH/BTC is stable above 0.070BTC and likely to consolidate before the next move.

Technically, the daily chart indicators are gaining momentum in the bullish territory.

Ether Price is forming a Solid Support

This past week was mostly bullish for ETH/USD as the pair formed a solid support around $285.00, and later started an upside move.

Ethereum Price ETH/USD Weekly Forecast

The 2-hour chart of ETH/USD is showing how the pair formed a bottom near $286.00 before starting a new upside wave. During the upside move, the pair broke a couple of key resistances - $300.00 and $305.00.

There is a clear bullish structure forming with support at $305.00. The mentioned level prevented gains earlier and now acts as a support. In addition, there are two bullish trendlines forming with support at $308.00 on the same chart.

On the upside, the pair is currently struggling to break the $313.00-314.00 resistance area. There were two attempts to break the mentioned resistance and a possible third could be looming in the near future.

The price will most likely break the $313.00 resistance area in the third attempt if it stays above $308.00. That support area is important since it is near the 23.6 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the last leg from the $286.72 low to $313.93 high.

Should the price fail to break $313.00, there is a risk of a downside move towards $305.00 in the short term. Any further declines would take the price towards the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the last leg from the $286.72 low to $313.93 high near $300.00, which is a major support.

Ether Price Weekly Analysis Chart

Moving on to the daily chart of ETH/USD, there is a bullish contracting triangle forming with support at $298.00. To the topside, the next major resistance is the 61.8 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the last drop from the $395.41 high to $200.91 low near $321.00.

A successful close above $313.00 could take the price towards $321.00. In the short-to-medium term, ETH/USD remains in the bullish trend and poised to surpass the $313.00 and $321.00 resistance levels.
