Ethereum (ETH) Price Analysis and Trend
After testing the low of $259, the digital currency later found a strong support level. The digital currency started consolidating higher with most range moves over the $270 mark. The value of the coin broke over the 38.2 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the previous swing from the high of $301 to the low of $259.
Nevertheless, the upward trend of the digital currency was capped close to the $280 mark and the 100-hourly simple moving average. Also, the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the previous swing from the high of $301 to the low of $259 also acted as a strong hurdle point. The value of the coin is presently trading in a range over the $270 mark, but there are also a couple of positive signs.
There is a formation of a near-term ascending channel with support at $271 on the 1-hour chart of the coin. On the upside, the value of the digital currency has to break over the resistance at the $281 mark and the 100-hourly simple moving average to gain more momentum.
Over this level, Ethereum (ETH) could test the resistance at the $290 mark in the near-term. But if it plunges below its immediate support at the $271 mark, it might decline towards the $260 mark.
