Ethereum: USD/ETH (ETH=) price is currently trading in a bearish zone and it even tested the $215 support area
In the past two days, ETH price faced an increase in selling interest from $230 against the US Dollar. There was a steady decline below the $225 support level. Moreover, Ethereum price even broke the key $222 support level and settled below the 100 hourly simple moving average. On the other hand, bitcoin price mostly traded with a positive bias, but it seems to be struggling near the $12,000 resistance.
The recent decline in Ether’s price was such that the price even broke the $220 support. A new weekly swing low was formed near $214 and the price is currently correcting higher. It traded above the $218 level plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $226 high to $214 swing low. However, the upward move was capped by the previous support at $220.
Moreover, Ethereum price failed to surpass the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $226 high to $214 swing low. More importantly, there is a major declining channel forming with resistance near $221 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Therefore, the pair is facing a strong resistance near the $220, $221 and $222 levels. To start a fresh increase, the price has to surpass the $222 resistance.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.
Note: this chart shows extraordinary price action to the downside.
The projected upper bound is: 255.79.
The projected lower bound is: 177.21.
The projected closing price is: 216.50.
A black body occurred (because prices closed lower than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 4 white candles and 6 black candles for a net of 2 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 22 white candles and 28 black candles for a net of 6 black candles.
A spinning top occurred (a spinning top is a candle with a small real body). Spinning tops identify a session in which there is little price action (as defined by the difference between the open and the close). During a rally or near new highs, a spinning top can be a sign that prices are losing momentum and the bulls may be in trouble.
Three black candles occurred in the last three days. Although these candles were not big enough to create three black crows, the steady downward pattern is bearish.
Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 26.8074. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 3 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 42.82. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a buy 23 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 6. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a sell 2 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a buy 11 period(s) ago.
