Ethereum Price Short-term Breakout Pattern
There was not much of action in ETH price as it continued to trade below the $305-306 levels against the US Dollar. The price recovered well from the $285.08 low and attempted a break above the $305 resistance. However, buyers failed to push the price above $305 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. As a result, there was a downside move below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $285.08 low to $305.18 high.
The price even broke the $300 level and traded towards the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $285.08 low to $305.18 high. It found bids near $296 and is currently recovering. At the moment, there is a short-term contracting triangle forming with resistance at $302.50 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The triangle resistance is near $302 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Therefore, an upside break above $303 in the short term won’t be easy.
On the downside, today’s support is at $295-296. A close below $295 would call for a test of $290 or even $285. Overall, there can be more ranging moves before the price makes the next move towards $310.
