Ether Price Holding Downtrend Support

There were downward movements this past week in Ether price against both major USD and BTC. Whenever, the price attempted a correction, it faced resistance on the upside.

Ether Price Weekly Analysis Chart

Yesterday, I highlighted a possible test of the 1.618 extension of the last wave from the $7.71 low to $7.92 high at $7.55. The ETH/USD pair did move down to create a new low at $7.50 before finding bids.

Currently, the pair is making a nice attempt to move higher. The 2-hours chart is showing positive signs, as the last 4-5 candles were bullish and calling for more gains.

The most important point is the fact that the pair broke a bearish trend line formed on the same chart at $7.70 to open the doors for a recovery. At the moment, it is attempting to break a short term resistance area at $7.85-90.

If the Ether buyers succeed in gaining momentum, there is a chance of a move towards $8.00. The stated level is another major resistance, as it coincides with the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the last decline from the $8.50 high to $7.50 low.

A break above $8.00 is needed to negate the current bearish bias. There is another reason why $8.00 is very important. When we look at the 12-hours chart of ETH/USD, there are two bearish trend lines positioned around the same area.

These trend lines may act as a major hurdle for Ether price on the upside. On the downside, the downtrend support is at $7.50, which is a crucial level and must hold the current bearish sentiment.

Weekly Resistance Levels

$7.90 and $8.00-10

Weekly Support Levels

$7.50 and $7.20

12-hours RSI

The RSI technical indicator is still below the 50 level, and waiting for a catalyst for an upside move.

12-hours MACD

The MACD is in the bearish area, but slowly reducing the slope.
