Ethereum Price Forecast: Ether Recovery Continues

February 27, 2018 4:56 PM

Ether is slowly moving higher against the US dollar but correcting lower versus bitcoin. ETH/USD could rise further with support at $850.00.

Key Highlights

Ether extended gains and traded above the $880.00 level against the US dollar.

There is a crucial bullish trendline forming with support at $850.00 on the 4-hour chart ETH/USD.

ETH/BTC failed to gain momentum and is currently approaching the 0.0800BTC support.

Technically, the 4-hour chart indicators are back in the bullish territory.

Can ETH/USD Break $910?

There was a decent upward wave initiated for ETH/USD this week. The pair was able to move above the $860.00 and $880.00 resistance levels to set the pace for more gains.

On the other hand, ETH/BTC was not able to rise further toward 0.0880BTC and started a downward correction. It seems like the pair may retest the 0.0800BTC support.

Ethereum Price ETH/USD Forecast

Starting with the 4-hour chart of ETH/USD, there was a solid support formed around $800.00. The pair started an uptrend and moved above two bearish trendlines with resistance at $850.00 and $865.00.

The pair managed to trade slightly above the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the last drop from the $981.64 high to $788.16 low, at $885.00. A 4-hour close above that mark could trigger further gains and the pair may perhaps break the $900.00 and $910.00 resistance levels.

On the downside, there is a crucial bullish trendline forming with support at $850.00 on the same chart. Therefore, if Ether’s price corrects lower, it could find support near $850.00.

Ether Price Analysis Chart

The hourly chart of ETH/USD suggests a series of important supports, such as $870.00, $860.00, and $840.00.

Below $840.00, the price would move back into a negative zone with the next support at $800.00. On the upside, Ether buyers will most likely struggle to break the $910.00 resistance. However, a successful break could extend the current recovery toward $960.00 and then $1,000.00.
