Ethereum Price: Trends and Highlights for August 16

  • ETH/USD broke down from an ascending triangle.
  • There is support at $175.
  • The RSI & MACD have generated bullish divergence.
  • ETH is trading inside a short-term symmetrical triangle.

Previous ETH Price Movement

A look at the four-hour time-frame shows that Ethereum has been trading inside an ascending triangle since July 15.

The breakdown occurred with significant but not extreme volume.

Afterward, it looks as if ETH made a double bottom near $178.

Long-Term Support

A look at the daily time-frame gives us a support area at $175.

This is a suitable place for the initiation of a reversal.

Additionally, the RSI and MACD give a bullish sentiment.

Both have been generating bullish divergence since the middle of July.

Let’s take a look at the short-term to confirm whether this movement will transpire.

Short-Term Movement

A look at the hourly time-frame shows that the Ethereum price has been trading inside a symmetrical triangle since August 15.

At the time of writing, it was trading in the middle of the triangle.

The symmetrical triangle is a neutral continuation pattern.

Since it has been created after a downward move, a breakdown is more likely.

A look at the moving averages does not give a clear indication of where the ETH price might go next.

The price is trading slightly below the 10- and 20-period moving averages.

However, the long lower wicks that have been created suggest buying power.

If a breakout occurs, there is strong resistance near $194. provided by the 0.618 fib level and the 100-period moving average.

However, due to the previous price movement, we believe a breakout would only be a temporary movement, and the price will again reach lows close to $175.

Ethereum Price Summary

The Ethereum price is trading slightly above a significant support area inside a short-term symmetrical triangle.

According to our analysis, it is likely to break down from the triangle and reach the support area.

A short-term temporary upward movement could occur before.
