ETH Price Prediction – March 18
ETH/USD moves below the key supports as the market price may continue to move down towards $1500.
Resistance levels: $2100, $2200, $2300
Support levels: $1500, $1400, $1300
As the market opens today, after touching the high of $1850 level, ETH/USD has been dropping with a bearish bias. The coin opens at $1824 and it is currently dropping below the $1800 level. However, Ethereum price did start a nasty decline and broke many supports to touch the low of $1758. The price could correct higher, but it may likely face sellers below the 9-day and 21-day moving averages.
What to Expect from Ethereum (ETH)
On the downside, there is a close below the $1600 level as the coin moves towards the 9-day and 21-day moving averages. As a matter of fact, dropping below the 9-day moving average could open the doors for more losses and the price may tumble below the $1550 level. More so, should it spike below the lower boundary of the channel, the critical support levels of $1500, $1400, and $1300 may be tested as the technical indicator RSI (14) moves below 55-level.
However, ETH/USD could either recover above $1850 or extend its decline. On the upside, the next major resistance is near the $1900 level. Meanwhile, the price needs to climb above the $2100, $2200, and $2300 resistance levels to move back into a positive zone. If not, there is a risk of more downsides below the channel.
When compares with Bitcoin, the daily chart shows that Ethereum’s price is trading below the 9-day and 21-day moving averages around the 3075 SAT. As soon as the price crosses above the moving averages, there is a possibility that additional benefits may be obtained in the long term. The next resistance key above this level is close to the 3300 SAT level. If the price keeps rising, it could even break the 3700 SAT and above in future sessions.
However, if the bears continue to push the price below the lower boundary of the channel, 2800 SAT and 2600 SAT supports may play out before rolling to the critical support at 2500 SAT and below. The RSI (14) may soon be crossing below the 40-level to increase the bearish movement.
