  • The price traded to a new weekly high at $395 and it is above the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).
  • There is a key bullish trend line forming with support near $374 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).

Ethereum Price Holding Uptrend Support

This past week, Ethereum remained in a positive zone above the $360 resistance against the US Dollar. ETH price even managed to surpass the $380 resistance zone to move further into a positive zone.

Ether price traded to a new weekly high at $395 and it is now well above the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). The price is currently correcting lower and trading below the $385 level. There was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $353 low to $395 high.

On the downside, the first major support is near the $376 level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). There is also a key bullish trend line forming with support near $374 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD.

The trend line support coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $353 low to $395 high. On the upside, the price is facing hurdles near the $395 and $400 levels. A successful close above the $400 resistance zone is needed for a fresh rally towards the $420 level or $425.

Downsides Supported in Ether (ETH)?

If Ethereum fails to clear the $400 resistance zone, it might continue to move down. An initial support is near the $375 zone or the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).

If there is a downside break below the trend line support and the 100 SMA, there is a risk of a larger decline towards the $355 and $350 support levels in the near term.
