Ethereum Price Bullish Extension
There was yet another spike in ETH price above $245 against the US Dollar. A new high was formed at $263.73, as the bullish trend remains intact. The price recently corrected lower, and moved towards the $245 level where it found support. Yesterday’s highlighted bullish trend line with support at $238 on the hourly chart is still intact. It can be considered as the current trend support near $240.245.
There is also an ascending channel pattern forming with support at $255 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. It is currently pushing the price up, and holding losses below $245. There is already a break above the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $263 high to $245 low. So, there are chances of a break above the last swing high at $263.73 for a new all-time high.
The next major resistance on the upside is at $268.10. It represents the 1.236 extension of the last decline from the $263 high to $245 low. As long as the channel and the trend line support at $240 is intact, ETH may break $263 towards $268. Above $268, the price could even challenge sellers at $275. The 100 hourly simple moving average is at $234 and moving nicely higher, which is a positive sign.
