Technically, the 4-hours chart indicators are turning positive, but yet to gain bullish ground.
Ether Price Recovery Attempt
We saw how Ether price declined against the US Dollar and Bitcoin recently and once there was a fix for the consensus bug in geth, it started recovering.
There was a nice upside move in ETH/USD, and as a result, there was a break above an intermediate resistance of $9.20. The best part was the fact that the price even managed to break the $9.50 resistance, but there was no proper close above it.
The Ether bears defended the $9.60 area and pushed the price down. However, on the downside, there is a bullish trend line formed on the hourly chart, which is acting as a support at the moment and holding the current trend.
So, as long as the price is above the trend line support, there is a chance of ETH/USD making another attempt to break the $9.60 resistance area. If the Ether buyers gain strength, there is even a possibility of a test of $10.00.
When we look at the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD, there are a couple of points to take now. First, the recent upside move was positive looking at the candles. Second, the upside was stopped around a connecting bearish trend line. Third, the last two candles show that the price is struggling and may be forming a short-term top.
Judging at the price action on the H4 chart, there is a chance of a minor dip in ETH/USD. However, in that situation, the Ether buyers may attempt to prevent the $9.20 area (earlier resistance now support).
