Ethereum Price Technical Analysis – ETH Sets Short-Term Top

Key Highlights

  • ETH price after setting a high against the US Dollar moved down and traded below the $13.60 level.
  • Yesterday’s highlighted bullish trend line on the hourly chart (data feed via SimpleFX) of ETH/USD was broken to open the doors for more losses.
  • My suggestion to stay alert yesterday was correct, as the price corrected lower sharply.

Ethereum price after making a new high versus the US Dollar created a top and started moving lower. More losses to follow?

Ethereum Price Correction

Ethereum price recently posted a high of $14.25 against the US Dollar where sellers appeared and protected any further gains. I cautioned yesterday stating that the price is in the overbought territory and may move down soon. The price did correct lower and broke not only the $14.00 handle, but also closed below the $13.60 support area.

During the downside move, there was a break below yesterday’s highlighted bullish trend line on the hourly chart (data feed via SimpleFX) of ETH/USD. Moreover, the price cleared the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $12.01 low to $14.25 high. However, the downside found support near the 100 hourly simple moving average. Furthermore, the 50% Fib retracement level of the same wave acted as a barrier for the sellers.

Now, the price is attempting to move higher once again. However, there is a bearish trend line on the hourly chart, which is acting as a resistance. I think as long as the price is below the trend line resistance, there is a chance of more declines in the near term. ETH/USD might have created a short-term top for a move back towards the $13.00 handle at least.

Hourly MACD – The MACD is now in the bearish zone, and suggesting a toppish pattern.

Hourly RSI – The RSI is back below the 50 level after remaining in the overbought readings.

Major Support Level – $13.00

Major Resistance Level – $13.80
