Ethereum Likely Gearing For Strong Surge Above $250: Rally Isn’t Over Yet | NewsBTC

Ethereum is trading nicely above the $240 and $230 support levels against the US Dollar. ETH price seems to be preparing for a strong surge above the $250 and $255 resistance levels.

  • ETH price is trading in an uptrend above the $230 support zone against the US Dollar.
  • A successful close above the $250 level could trigger a significant upward move.
  • There is a major contracting triangle forming with resistance near $245 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair could also correct lower, but dips are likely to remain bid near $230 and $228.

Ethereum Price Could Rally Again

This past week, Ethereum spiked above the $250 resistance level against the US Dollar. ETH price traded as high as $253 and later started a downside correction below the $240 support.

The price spiked below the $235 and $230 levels. However, it found a strong support near $225 and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). Ether climbed back above the $235 level and recovered most its losses.

It traded above the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $253 high to $230 swing low. It is now struggling to clear the $244 and $245 resistance levels. There is also a major contracting triangle forming with resistance near $245 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD.

Ethereum Price

The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $253 high to $230 swing low is also near $245. Therefore, if Ethereum clears the $245 resistance, it could continue to rise above the $250 resistance level.

An immediate resistance is near the $253 high, above which there are high chances of a sustained upward move towards the $260 and $265 levels in the near term.

More Downsides in ETH?

If Ethereum fails to continue above the $245 and $250 resistance levels, there are chances of another drop. An initial support is near the $232 level.

The main support is near the $230 level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). If the price fails to stay above the $230 support, the bears are likely to take control and ether might dive towards the $220 level.
