Ethereum Price Range
In the last analysis, we saw how ETH price formed a base near $86 against the US Dollar. There was also a major range pattern with support at $84.50 and resistance near $91 formed on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The same range pattern is still active, and playing a major role. The price is currently well above the 100 hourly simple moving average at $88, which is a positive sign.
On the upside, the range resistance is near $91, which acted as a hurdle on many occasions. A break above it is needed for a move towards $100. On the downside, there is a connecting bullish trend line at $85.80 on the hourly chart. Below $85.80, there is a support near $84.20 which is the range support. It also coincides with the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $69.24 swing low to $90.98 high.
On the upside, we need a break above $91, but it won’t be easy. The current momentum is with buyers as long as the price is above $85. A break below the range support at $85 won’t be good, and may call for a change in the trend.
