Ethereum Price Technical Analysis 03/02/2016 – Calling For Gains

Key Highlights

  • Ethereum price spiked higher and the recently highlighted breakout pattern on the hourly chart played well.
  • There was a contracting triangle pattern formed on the hourly chart (data feed via Kraken), which was broken by the bulls to take the price higher.
  • The price traded above the $7.50 level, and may correct a few points from the current levels moving ahead.

Ethereum price gained heavily once again and it looks like there is a chance of more upsides if the bulls remain in control.

Ethereum Price – Buy Dips?

Ethereum price consolidated for a brief period during the past couple of sessions, and finally broke higher. I highlighted a contracting triangle pattern on the hourly chart (data feed via Kraken) yesterday and suggested to wait for a break to enter a trade. The price did move higher and breached a major resistance area of $6.60. After the break, there was a nice upside move that took the price above the $7.0 level.

A new high was formed at $7.75 where sellers are trying their best to prevent additional gains. So, there is a chance of a minor correction in the short term. An initial support can be around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $6.30 low to $7.75 high. It looks like the price is in the overbought territory so the bulls must be very careful in the short term and should wait for the right time to enter a trade.
