Ether Price Analysis Chart

However, there was a fundamental reason, which helped Ether in gaining bids. As mentioned, the Ethereum Foundation announced the block number for their 4th hard fork: Spurious Dragon, which caught Ether buyers attention and sent the price to an upward trend.

There was a nice upside move in ETH/USD, as the pair broke a couple of short-term resistance levels to open the doors for a recovery. The pair closed above the $10.10 resistance, and also broke a bearish trend line formed on the 2-hours chart.

Furthermore, there was a move above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $10.74 high to $9.86 low, which is a positive sign. The pair at the moment is consolidating above the $10.20 level, and faces a major resistance near $10.40. As can be seen from the chart, it was a support earlier, and may now act as a hurdle for an upside continuation.

Looking at the 6-hours chart of ETH/USD, it looks like the pair stopped right at a bearish trend line resistance. It is currently preventing a break, and stopping the current recovery wave. Moreover, we can also see the same $10.40 resistance, which could play a major role in the short term.

Overall, the recent break is encouraging, but Ether price faces a lot many hurdles on the way up.
