Looking at the ETH/USD 1-Day Chart:
- Since our previous ETH/USD analysis, we can see that the market has risen and broken out of the symmetrical triangle we had pointed out on our last price analysis. The market had continued to increase and managed to break above resistance at the 2019 high around $170. Price action has now recently met resistance at $185 where lies the medium termed 1.272 Fibonacci Extension level.
- From above: Besides $185, the next level of resistance lies at $194, which contains the bearish .786 Fibonacci Retracement level, followed with strong resistance at the legendary $200 level. Further resistance can then be expected at $212 where lies the medium termed 1.618 Fibonacci Extension level.
- From below: The nearest level of support now lies at $170. Below, support is located at $161, $151, $146 and the 100-days moving average line, currently around $140.
- The RSI has recently entered the overbought area which may signal a potential pullback soon. However, we still wait for a crossover down on the Stochastic RSI.
- The trading volume has been steadily rising during April.
Looking at the ETH/BTC 1-Day Chart:
- Following our previous ETH/BTC, we can see that Etehreum has been on a rollercoaster. The market had initially dropped beneath the descending triangle previously mentioned. However, we can see that the coin had found support around 0.032 BTC and rebounded. The market is now trading at the upper boundary resistance of the descending triangle.
- From above: Besides the triangle, initial resistance is located at 0.035 BTC. Further resistance above can be found at 0.036 BTC and 0.037 BTC, where lies a short term bearish .618 Fibonacci Retracement level. Above 0.037 BTC, further resistance is located at 0.038 BTC and then the strong resistance area of 0.040 BTC.
- From below: The nearest level of support is located at the base of the triangle around 0.0335 BTC. Below the triangle, further support lies at 0.0325 BTC, 0.031 BTC, and 0.030 BTC.
