Ethereum’s technical picture
On the daily charts, strong support is created by psychological $180.00. The price attempted to break below this area on numerous occasions since the end of October, but new buyers always popped in to save the day. Once this barrier is out of the way, the sell-off is likely to gain traction with the next focus on the middle line of the Bollinger Band at $178.60. If it is also broken, psychological $170.00 will come into view, followed by the descending trendline at $168.00. This trend line served as a strong resistance until it was broken on October 26.
On the upside, the strong resistance awaits the bulls at $188.50, it is created by SMA200 (Simple Moving Average) on a daily chart. The price tested this line several times recently, but it seems to bee too strong. ETh/USD has been trading below SMA200 daily since mid-July. The next barrier is seen at $190.00. We will need to see a sustainable move above this handle for the extended recovery towards psychological $200.00.
