Ether Price Analysis
After struggling to clear the $210.00 resistance, ETH/USD started a downward move. The pair broke the $208.00 and $206.00 levels to move into a bearish zone.
Contrary, ETH/BTC remained in a tight range above the 0.0310BTC support. It seems like the pair is preparing for the next significant break either above $0.0320BTC or below 0.0310BTC.
Looking at the 2-hour chart of ETH/USD, the pair recently failed to break a solid resistance near the $210.00 level. Ether buyers also struggled to push the price above a major bearish trendline, with current resistance at $208.00.
Therefore, to start a decent recovery, the price must break the trendline and the $210.00 resistance. On the downside, there is a connecting bullish trendline in place, with support at $204.00. Should Ether’s price decline below the trendline support, there could be more losses toward the $200.00 support zone.
Moving down to the 30-minute chart of ETH/USD, the pair traded lower after forming a high at $208.65. There was a steady decline and the price traded as low as $203.97.
The price is currently recovering, but it could face resistance near two bearish trendlines and $207.00. Besides, the 50 Fibonacci retracement level of the recent drop from the $208.65 high to $203.97 low is near $206.00.
If Ether corrects higher, it is likely to face a lot of hurdles near the $206.00, $207.00 and $208.00 levels, followed by the all-important $210.00. The main support on the downside is at $204.00, below which the $200.00 support might protect declines.
