Short-Term ETH Price Support
A closer look at the hourly ETH price gives us our first minor support area.
It is found at ₿0.0183, a level where the Ethereum price is currently trading.
The two previous times it reached this area, (August 14-15) it began upward moves of varying magnitudes.
This idea is supported by a look at the hourly RSI.
It has generated bullish divergence over the past 24 hours.
However, the divergence is not very significant and is not present in longer-term time-frames.
Therefore, any upward moves resulting from it will most likely be temporary.
Let’s take a look at the daily time-frame to see how the recent price movement fits into a larger picture.
A look at the daily time-frame shows that Ethereum has been trading inside a descending channel since July 9.
At the time of writing, it was trading in the middle of the channel.
Additionally, there is a support area between ₿0.016 and ₿0.017.
If the Ethereum price were to decrease at the rate predicted by the channel, it would reach this area and the descending support line on August 20-25.
A look at moving averages supports this possibility.
A bearish cross between the 10- and 20-day MAs occurred on August 4.
The ETH price has been trading below both since then.
Yesterday, the price reached the 20-day MA before decreasing.
It is currently facing very close resistance from the 10-day MA.
Additionally, the volume was significantly higher during the bearish candlestick on August 14.
This makes us believe that ETH will decrease until it reaches the support area at ₿0.016 – ₿0.017.
The Ethereum price has been trading inside a descending channel.
According to our analysis, it is likely to continue decreasing until it reaches the support area outlined above.
A short-term increase towards ₿0.019 could occur before the Ethereum price resumes its downward movement.
