A look at the daily time-frame shows that ETH has been trading inside a long-term descending wedge since October 2018.
Once the price reached the support line on September 5, it began the upward move discussed in the introduction.
At the time of writing, it was trading in the middle of the wedge, moving towards the resistance line.
Will it reach it?
Looking at the daily moving averages (MA), we can see that the short-term MAs have confirmed the uptrend.
However, the price is facing resistance from its 100-day MA.
Once the upward move began, the 10- and 20-day MAs made a bullish cross on September 15.
ETH has been trading above them since.
However, once the price reached the 100-day MA, it began to decrease.
It created a long upper wick and has failed to reach a close above the MA.
Let’s take a closer look and see if the price will be successful in doing so.
Looking at the 4-hour time-frame, we can see that Ethereum has reached a significant support area and is following a very steep ascending support line.
The significance of the resistance area is strengthened since it coincides with the previously discussed 100-day MA.
Additionally, incorporating the RSI shows a developing bearish divergence.
The divergence is visible in the higher highs of September 18 and 19.
This makes us believe that the price will eventually break down from the support line.
An outline of possible future price movement is given below:
ETH is likely to reach the resistance area again, before creating a reversal pattern and breaking down.
Afterward, it is likely to reach the support area at ₿0.0198.
