ETH/USD – Ether Trades In Short Term Symmetrical Triangle

Key Support Levels: $2330, $2200, $2035.

Key Resistance Levels: $2470, $2650, $2740.

While Bitcoin rebounded to $40K and got rejected earlier this week, ETH topped reaching nearly $2900, where it hit resistance at a bearish .382 Fib. From there, the coin started to head lower over the past few days until finding support at around $2200 (.618 Fib) just a few hours ago.

Looking at the following lower time frame chart, ETH is trading inside a symmetrical triangle pattern over the week, as it rebounded from the lower boundary earlier today while reaching $2200 support. The apex of this triangle extends into early June, when a breakout in either direction can still be expected at any moment.

ETH-USD Short Term Price Prediction

Looking ahead, the first resistance lies at $2470. This is followed by $2650 (upper angle of the triangle), $2740, and $2980 – $3K (50-day MA & bearish .382 Fib).

On the other side, the first support lies at $2330 (.5 Fib & 100-day MA). This is followed by $2200 (.618 Fib and today’s low), $2035 (Feb 2021 highs), $2000, and $1888.

The daily RSI is now pointing upward again as it looks to head back toward the midline. For a bullish breakout of the short-term triangle, the RSI must push above the 50 mark to increase the bullish momentum.

ETH/BTC – Bulls Find Support At .5 Fib Level

Key Support Levels: 0.067 BTC, 0.0648 BTC, 0.0627 BTC.

Key Resistance Levels: 0.07 BTC, 0.0737 BTC, 0.075 BTC.

Ethereum rebounded from 0.06 BTC at the start of last week and pushed as high as 0.0737 BTC earlier this week. There, it met resistance at a bearish .618 Fib and could not overcome the level.

As a result, ETH/BTC headed lower over the past few days until support was found at 0.0648 BTC (.5 Fib) yesterday. It has since bounced from this level as it trades at 0.0678 BTC.
