ETH Price Analysis – August 17
Ethereum opened with a downtrend as the market begins today. The coin recently experienced a heavy pullback in price due to the market pressure.
Resistance levels: $230, $240, $250
Support levels: $150, $140, $130
Ethereum is currently consolidating within a descending channel since the last two days. The daily chart shows that as the market opens today, the price first went down to $182.17 trying to meet the nearest support of $170 but the bulls enter the market to drag the price up to where it is changing hands at $185.80.
The daily price is trending below the 21-day moving average around the immediate market resistance. The bulls will have to move above the mentioned moving average to reach the resistance levels at $230, $240 and $250. Meanwhile, the support levels to watch are $150, $140 and $130 respectively. The moving average convergence/divergence (MACD) on the chart shows four straight bearish sessions as the RSI (14) is at the oversold zone, indicating more downtrends.
Against the BTC, looking at the daily chart, we can see that Ethereum is clearly bearish. As the price falls, sellers are posing an additional threat for buyers to reach the 0.016BTC support level where the nearest target is located. However, an eventual break below the lower line of the symmetrical triangle may cause Ethereum collapse.
Meanwhile, a continuation of the downtrend could hit the main support at 0.015BTC before falling to 0.014BTC and below, while the buyers could probably push the market to critical potential resistance at 0.020BTC and above. The stochastic RSI has recently experienced a rapid decline in price with a sharp drift from the overbought territory. ETH will continue to fall if the sellers continue to release the pressure.
