The Status:

  • ETH price fell from the $393.56 high and currently remains under pressure against the US Dollar.
  • The major contracting triangle pattern with resistance at $320 broke below and moved below $297 forming on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD (data feed via SimpleFX).
  • The pair is heading to test the $267 support floor and decide the next move from there.


Technical Aspect

It was a volatile week for ETH price as it traded towards the $400 level against the US Dollar. The price made a top near $394.29 and later started moving lower. Sellers gained control after the news of Chinese bitcoin exchanges ban rumors, and the price dropped below $325. A low was formed near $267 before a correction initiated and the price moved above the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $394.29 high to $267 low.

However, the upside move was protected by a major hurdle near $333. The 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $393.56 high to $274.01 low is at $333 to act as a barrier. Moreover, the major contracting triangle pattern broke on downside below $297.7 support, which has now become a resistance.

The pair is again heading lower and currently moving to test the major support at $294. A break and close below $267 could take the pair back towards $235. On the upside, the $297-316 levels remains a major resistance zone. If you are looking to buy, you should wait for the price to get stable above $310 before entering into a trade.

4-hours MACD – The MACD is currently in the bearish zone.

4-hours RSI – The RSI is now well below the 50 level.

Major Support Level – $267.86

Major Resistance Level – $297
