Ethereum is recovering higher and trading above the $335 resistance against the US Dollar. ETH price is likely to accelerate higher if it clears the $360 level and the 100 hourly SMA.

  • Ethereum is slowly recovering above the $335 and $340 resistance levels.
  • The price is still facing a major resistance near $360 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
  • There was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance near $351 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair could start a sharp relief rally if it clears the $360 resistance zone.

Ethereum Price Approaching Breakout Zone

After forming a strong support base above $310, Ethereum started a decent recovery. ETH price recovered above the $320 and $335 resistance levels to move into a short-term positive zone.

There was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $360 swing high to $323 swing low. More importantly, there was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance near $351 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.

Ether price is now consolidating above the broken trend line and $345. It seems like the price is stuck near the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $360 swing high to $323 swing low.

On the upside, there is a strong resistance forming near the $360 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. A clear break and close above the 100 hourly SMA could lift the market sentiment and the price might climb above the $370 resistance.

The next stop for the bulls might be near the $385 level or the 1.236 Fib extension level of the downward move from the $360 swing high to $323 swing low. The main barrier is now forming near $400.

Fresh Drop in ETH?

If Ethereum fails to clear the $360 resistance and the 100 hourly SMA, there is a risk of a fresh decline. An initial support on the downside is near the $340 level.

The next major support is near the $332 level and a connecting bullish trend line on the same chart. A break below the trend line and $330 might push ether back towards the $310 support.
