Ethereum price looks for an upside reversal
The Ethereum price analysis shows a consolidation.
On the daily time frame, ETH retraced from the swing highs of $2,031.39. However, the price quickly retraced with a depreciation of 30% toward the 0.23% Fibonacci retracement level. The Fibonacci retracment extends from the lows of $1,000 and acts as a support for the bulls.
After falling below the mentioned level, the price again finds a stoppage near the 0.50% Fibonacci retracement level.
Further, the price is still trading below the critical 20-day exponential moving average (EMA) at $1,714.
A renewed buying pressure could result in a quick recovery toward the 0.23% Fibonacci retracement level toward $1,800.
On the flip side, a break below the session’s low would continue with the correction. In that occurs, the bears could drag the price toward $1,600.
The RSI (14) trades below the average line indicate a struggle for the bulls. Currently, it reads at 40.
On the hourly chart, the price follows the ascending trend line from the lows of $1,540. ETH looks bullish on the short-time frame. A green candlestick in the last few hours shows a spike in buy order pushing the price toward $1,700.
However, the price faces resistance near the mentioned level, we expect a minor pullback in the price. A dip buying opportunity for sidelined investors.
