Ethereum Price Forecast: Ether Upsides Remain Capped

By

Ether’s price declined further against the US dollar and bitcoin. ETH/USD is slowly rebounding, but it is facing many hurdles near $200.00 and $203.00.

Key Highlights

Ether’s price declined below $195.00 and traded close to $185.00 against the US dollar.
ETH/USD is currently recovering toward a bearish trendline, with resistance at $203.00 on the 30-minute chart.
ETH/BTC extended losses below the 0.0320BTC support level.

Technically, the 2-hour chart indicators are recovering from the oversold levels in the bearish territory.

Ether Price Analysis

After trading as low as $194.68, ETH/USD corrected higher. However, the pair failed to gain momentum above the $200.00 resistance and started a fresh decline. It broke the last low and traded to a new weekly low at $187.00.

Similarly, ETH/BTC failed to recover and broke the key support at 0.0320BTC. The pair is currently trading above 0.0310BTC, but there is a risk of further slides below the 0.0308BTC level.

Ether Price ETH

Looking at the 30-minute chart of ETH/USD, the pair started a decent rebound from the $187.00 low. It moved above the $190.00 and $195.00 levels, but it struggled to surpass the $200.00 resistance.

It seems there is a key bearish trendline in place, with resistance at $198.00 on the same chart. To recover further, Ether buyers need to clear the trendline, the $200.00 handle, and the $203.00 resistance level. On the downside, an immediate support is at $195.00, below which the price could test the $190.00 level.

Moving up to the 2-hour chart of ETH/USD, the pair carved three green candles after forming the $187.00 low. However, Ether’s price seems to be finding strong offers near the $200.00 level and the 23.6 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the recent drop from the $231.95 high to $187.00 low.

Ethereum Price Analysis ETH

Should the price settle above the $200.00 resistance and gain momentum above $203.00, the next target for buyers could be $210.00 and the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the recent drop.

The short-term price action is positive, but the overall trend is bearish until Ether’s price climbs back above the $200.00 and $210.00 resistance levels.
