Ethereum price recently broke out of a period of consolidation as mentioned in my previous analysis on ETH, completing an asymmetrical triangle in favors of the bulls but has since begun a pullback breaking the short-term support. Bears now eye $190 support around the visible range low.
Ethereum Price 1-Hour Analysis
On the 1 hour chart for ETH/USD, we can see how price action progressed after the breakout. Price levels tested $240 resistance and failed to gain on the 6th of August resulting in a rejection causing a pull-back to break the short-term support around $217. Since then price levels have continued to drop and looks poised to re-test the visible range low at $189 just below the 0.382 Fibonacci level.
It’s important to note that volume remains reasonably low on this pull-back and will need to see a drastic increase in selling momentum to cause a crash through $189 support making it likely that a bounce could happen as market price tests this key support price level. RSI just hovering above 20.00 being oversold indicates selling momentum has control over market price.
Ethereum Price 8-Hour Analysis
On the 8 Hour chart for ETH/USD, we can see where the support at $189 originates from being the local top throughout the middle of April just before price levels broke out and swiftly tested $282 resistance thereafter. RSI has yet to hit oversold zone but appears to be clearly heading in that trajectory, by the time the market price which is currently $204 tests support at $189 it’s likely RSI will be fully oversold presenting a good reason to consider re-entering at this level.
