Ethereum Price Holds Strong At $3K But Can Bulls Clear This Hurdle?

Share

Ethereum price is consolidating near the $3,000 zone. ETH could start a decent recovery wave if it clears the $3,100 and $3,200 resistance levels.

  • Ethereum is struggling to recover above the $3,100 resistance zone.
  • The price is trading below $3,120 and the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average.
  • There is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance at $3,035 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair could start another decline if it stays below the $3,100 resistance zone.

Ethereum Price Holds Ground

Ethereum price slowly moved lower after it failed to clear the $3,200 resistance zone. ETH remained in a bearish zone below $3,100 and showed bearish signs, like Bitcoin.

Recently, the bears were able to push the price below the $3,000 support zone. However, the bulls were active near the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward wave from the $2,535 swing low to the $3,279 high. Ethereum is now trading below $3,120 and the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average.

Immediate resistance is near the $3,030 level. There is also a major bearish trend line forming with resistance at $3,035 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The first major resistance is near the $3,100 level and the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average.

The next key resistance sits at $3,200, above which the price might rise toward the $3,280 level. A close above the $3,280 resistance could send the price toward the $3,500 pivot level. If there is a move above the $3,500 resistance, Ethereum could even climb toward the $3,650 resistance in the coming sessions.

More Losses In ETH?

If Ethereum fails to clear the $3,100 resistance, it could start another decline. Initial support on the downside is near the $3,000 level. The first major support is near the $2,900 zone.

The next key support could be the $2,820 zone or the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward wave from the $2,535 swing low to the $3,279 high. A clear move below the $2,820 support might send the price toward $2,600. Any more losses might send the price toward the $2,550 level in the near term.
