At the time of writing, the price was trading close to the resistance line. On June 10, it made an unsuccessful attempt at a breakout.
Will it be successful in the future? Let’s look at technical indicators and try to answer this question.
During the highs of May 16 and 30, the RSI generated lower highs. This is known as bearish divergence and often precedes price decreases.
In the case of ETH, a decrease followed shortly after, which began the creation of the descending wedge. This is a bullish pattern, somewhat reducing the significance of the divergence.
However, the moving averages give a similar bearish outlook.
A bearish cross between the 10- and 20- day MAs also occurred on June 7. This is often an indication that a downtrend has begun. Since then, the price has failed to move past any of the MAs.
The use of these indicators makes it likely that the Ethereum price (ETH) will continue to decrease at the rate predicted by the wedge and possibly break down.
If a breakdown occurs, where will the price find support?
One resistance and one support area are traced for ETH/USD below:
The closest resistance area is found near $270. If the Ethereum price (ETH) breaks out from the wedge, it is likely to reach this area.
The closest support area is found near $200. If the price breaks down from the wedge, it is likely to find support near this area. Furthermore, if it continues to decrease at the rate predicted by the wedge, it should reach this area after June 20. The analysis of technical indicators support this possibility.
To conclude, the price of Ethereum (ETH) has recently broken out of a descending wedge. It is currently trading inside another descending wedge. The technical indicators give a bearish outlook and support price decreases towards the support area outlined above.
