ETH/USD – Hints Of Bearish Divergence Showing
Key Support Levels: $1685, $1600, $1536.
Key Resistance Levels: $1800, $1850, $1900.
Ethereum has now established another ascending price channel as it trades near the upper boundary. It had rebounded from $1300 at the start of the month and pushed higher to reach a new ATH at $1839 this week.
Over the past four days, Ethereum seems to be struggling to penetrate the resistance at $1800 as it couldn’t close a daily candle above it. For this bullish leg to continue, ETH must break $1800 and breach the ascending price channel’s upper boundary at around $1850.
ETH-USD Short Term Price Prediction
Looking ahead, the first resistance lies at $1800. This is followed by $1850 (1.618 Fib Extension – Yellow & upper boundary of the channel), $1900, and $1960 (1.272 Fib Extension). Added resistance above $2000 lies at $2060 (1.414 Fib Extension) and $2200.
On the other side, the first support lies at $1685. This is followed by $1600, $1536 (.236 Fib & lower boundary of the channel), $1425 (previous ATH), and $1350 (.382 Fib).
The RSI is showing hints of bearish divergence as it starts to head lower in February while the price has been grinding higher. If this plays out, ETH could see a drop toward the ascending price channel’s lower boundary.
