Ether Price Facing Crucial Resistance

Yesterday, Ether price started a recovery against both majors (US Dollar and Bitcoin). The ETH/USD pair spiked above $11.00, and the ETH/BTC pair managed to close above 0.0150BTC. The most significant point about the recent recovery was the fact that ETH/USD held the all-important $10.00 support.

Ether Price Analysis Chart

The pair started a corrective rally, and cleared a couple of important hurdles on the way up. First, a bearish trend line on the hourly chart was broken. Second, the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the last drop from the $11.58 high to $9.67 low was cleared.

Both these opened the doors for further upsides. As a result, there was an hourly close above the $11.00 handle. The ETH/USD pair is currently consolidating gains and may correct a few points lower. In that case, it might find buyers near a support trend line formed on the hourly chart.
