Ether Price Analysis (ETH/USD)
After trading above the $108.00 resistance, ETH/USD extended gains toward the $112.00 resistance. However, the pair failed near $111.20, trimmed gains, and declined below the $110.00 and $108.00 levels.
Similarly, ETH/USD did not succeed in surpassing the 0.0315BTC resistance. The pair started a fresh decline and traded below the 0.0312BTC and 0.0310BTC support levels. The next key supports are 0.0308BTC and 0.0305BTC.
Starting with the 6-hour chart of ETH/USD, the pair started a short-term correction after trading to a new yearly low at $101.05. Ether corrected above the $105.00 and $108.00 resistance levels. Additionally, there was a break above the 23.6 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the drop from the $132.61 swing high to $101.05 low.
However, the recent rebound failed below a few important resistances, $112.00 and $115.00. There are also two key bearish trendlines in place, with resistance at $111.50 and $115.50 on the same chart.
Therefore, Ether buyers are likely to face a strong selling interest between $112.00-115.00 and it won’t be easy for them to gain strength. To the downside, there is a bullish trendline formed, with support at $106.00.
Moving down to the 2-hour chart of ETH/USD, the pair seems to be approaching a crucial support near $106.00 and a bullish trendline. More importantly, the previous resistance near $105.50 may now act as a solid support.
