ETHUSD – Daily Chart

ETH/USD has been consolidating within the ascending channel for the past few days. For now, ETH/USD is currently trading at $144.45 but still trading above the 9-day and 21-day moving average. At the opening of the market today, the daily chart shows that the price first went up to $146.77, where it met resistance and later fell to $142.12 support level where it began to correct itself.

However, in the early hours of today, the bulls have regained control of the market. A couple of days ago, trading has been a resounding victory for the bulls as Ethereum’s price jumped up, breaking above the 9-day and 21-day moving averages. Looking at the daily chart, the daily breakdown shows us that ETH/USD is still following an uptrend.

In other words, for a backward movement, the market can be supported by $130 and $128 levels, if the price falls below the previous levels; another support is around $126. But should in case the price exceeds the indicated level by breaking above the channel, the resistance levels of $155, $157 and $159 may be visited. The MACD signal lines are about crossing to the positive side, which may likely give more support to the bulls.
