Ethereum Price Regains Bullish Momentum, But $400 Still A Key Hurdle


Ethereum recovered nicely above the $380 and $390 levels against the US Dollar. ETH price must surpass the $400 barrier for another leg higher in the near term.

  • Ethereum is up over 5% and it broke the key $380 and $390 resistance levels.
  • The price traded close to the $398 level and it settled above the 100 hourly simple moving average.
  • There was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance near $390 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair could correct a few points, but the previous resistance near $388 might provide support.
