Ethereum (ETH) Price Trend and Analysis
Yesterday, there was a key upward movement in the value of Ethereum (ETH) over the $405 mark. Nevertheless, the digital currency failed to break a couple of crucial resistances close to the $405 and $408 marks. The value of the digital currency encountered a strong hurdle close to the 100-hourly SMA and the $408 level.
Also, the 76.4 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the previous swing from the high of $414 to the low of $401 prevented an upward break. Furthermore, the crucial bearish trendline of the week prevented gains close to the $406 on the one-hour chart of the digital currency.
The digital currency later plunged lower and tested a new low of $365. The digital currency is presently hovering between $360 and $380. The digital currency corrected higher and tested the $380 mark – which acted as a point of resistance – before the coin declined to its current value.
In addition, the 38.25 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the previous swing from the high of $410 to the low of $365 also acted as a hurdle. The digital currency may perhaps surge higher over the $380 mark, but it will likely encounter a strong hurdle close to the $400. As a result of this, it needs a very strong bullish momentum to take it over the $400 mark.
