Ethereum Price and Time: More Downsides Possible Before Fresh Increase

Ethereum Price and Time: More Downsides Possible Before Fresh Increase


Ethereum is down over 15% from the $445 high against the US Dollar. ETH price could continue to move down, but the $360 support zone might act as a strong barrier for the bears.

  • ETH price is trading in a bearish zone below the $400 and $410 resistance levels against the US Dollar.
  • There is a strong support waiting on the downside near the $368 and $360 levels.
  • There is a key connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance near $400 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair is likely to continue lower towards $360 before the bulls attempt a fresh increase.

Ethereum Price Turns Red

This past week, Ethereum failed to extend gains and started a strong decline below $420 against the US Dollar. ETH price broke the $400 support zone and settled well below the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).

The decline was such that ether even spiked below the $385 support level. A low is formed near $379 and the price is currently correcting higher. It moved above the $385 level, but it is facing resistance near the $395 level.

It seems like the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $447 high to $379 low is acting as a resistance. The first major hurdle is near the $400 level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). There is also a key connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance near $400 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD.

If ether price breaks the $395 and $400 resistance levels, it could start a real recovery wave. The next major resistance is near the $410 level or the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $447 high to $379 low.

To move into a positive zone and start a fresh upward move, Ethereum must clear the $410 and $415 resistance levels in the coming days.

Downsides Supported in Ether (ETH)?

If Ethereum fails to clear the $400 resistance zone, it could continue to move down. An initial support is near the $380 level, but the first major support is near the $368 level.

The next major support is near the $360 level (the last breakout zone), below which the bears are likely to target a larger downward move in the near term.
