ETH/USD – Market Falls Into Lower Boundary of Ascending Price Channel

Key Support Levels: $1755, $1700, $1667.
Key Resistance Levels: $1876, $1900, $1960.

Ethereum started the week on a bullish note after rebounding above $1500 over the weekend. The cryptocurrency went on to form a short-term ascending price channel as it continued to push upward to reach the resistance at $1875 (1.414 Fib Extension).

It could not close a daily candle above the resistance and ended up rolling over on Wednesday. It has since found support at $1755 (previous resistance) and is now trading at the lower boundary of the ascending price channel.

ETH-USD Short Term Price Prediction

Looking ahead, the first level of support lies directly at $1755 (lower boundary of the price channel). This is followed by support at $1700, $1667 (previous resistance), $1580, and $1500.

On the other side, the first level of strong resistance lies at $1876 (1.414 Fib Extension – yellow). This is followed by $1900, $1960 (1.272 Fib Extension – blue), $2000, and $2036 (ATH).

The RSI is heading lower, indicating fading bullish momentum. It is still well above the midline, so the bears are not taking over the momentum anytime soon.
