In the short-term, the ETH / USD pair has a neutral trading bias with the cryptocurrency now testing towards its 200-period moving average on the four-hour time frame, following a strong downside move below its 100-period on the mentioned time frame.
Ethereum has been under selling pressure since its swift reversal from the $170.00 level on February 24th.
An ascending triangle pattern is clearly visible on the four-hour time frame, with the pattern currently holding an upside or downside projection of around $40.00. Traders should note that there are times when ascending triangle patterns form as reversal patterns at the end of protracted downtrends, but they are typically continuation patterns of the prevailing market trend.
The lower trendline of the ascending triangle pattern is currently found at the $114.00 level, traders should continue to monitor trendline support if selling pressures accelerate.
The MACD indicator on the four-hour time frame has turned bearish and is currently generating a sell signal.
The Stochastic indicator on the four-hour time frame is bearish and moving towards oversold territory, which could eventually signal a reversal higher in the ETH / USD pair.
Ethereum / USD Medium-term price analysis
Ethereum has a bearish medium-term outlook, with the ETH / USD pair failing to break above its key 200-day moving average during last month rally.
A symmetrical triangle pattern is visible on the daily time frame, with the neutral pattern starting to narrow, which usually indicates that a decisive breakout from the pattern may be nearing.
It is worth noting that key technical support below the triangle pattern is found at the ETH / USD pair’s former monthly trading low, around the $102.00 level.
Traders should carefully monitor the symmetrical triangle pattern, particularly daily price closes above or below the triangle.
The MACD indicator on the daily time frame has turned bearish and shows scope for further downside in the ETH / USD pair.
The Stochastic Indicator on the time frame is bearish, although similar to the four-hour time frame, the indicator is moving towards oversold conditions.
The ETH / USD pair is at risk of turning bearish in the short-term if selling activity gathers pace below its key 200-period moving average on the four-hour time frame. The key downside test for the cryptocurrency will be at trendline support, at the $114.00 level.
If bulls can fend off the recent bearish attack, we should expect a rebound over the medium-term towards the $160.00. A sustained break above the $172.00 resistance level could spark a stronger rally above the $200.00.
