A look at the two-hour time-frame shows that ETH has been trading inside a horizontal channel since July 15.
The horizontal channel is considered a neutral pattern, making a price breakout and breakdown equally likely.
The resistance line is at ₿0.0224.
Initially, the ETH price created a support line at ₿0.0208 and resistance at ₿0.0216.
However, on July 24, it began an upward move and broke out from this channel..
The new support line is now at ₿0.0216.
Let’s take a look at a long-term time-frame to see where the price is heading to next.
A look at the weekly time-frame shows us that the ETH price is trading inside a very significant support area.
The support area is found at ₿0.020, created by the highs of September 2016.
The price has not traded below this level since the beginning of 2017.
Additionally, we can see that the Ethereum price is trading inside a descending channel.
At the time of writing, it was trading right on the support line, which coincides with the long-term support area.
So while the weekly time-frame has given us a strong support area, it has not yet provided us with a bullish sign.
A look at the daily time-frame gives us our first bullish indications.
On July 23, ETH reached the support line of the channel.
An upward move began, and the price created a bullish engulfing candlestick (1).
The following day, ETH decreased, erasing all of the previous day’s gains.
However, a rapid upward move followed and the price increased all the way to ₿0.0224 during the same day.
The Ethereum price has yet to decrease below the opening price of this move.
Therefore, we can consider the recent decrease as a response to the prior rapid increase, rather than the beginning of a new downtrend.
A look at the daily moving averages (MA) shows that the price is at a very critical juncture in time.
The 10- and 20-day MAs are very close to making a bullish cross.
Furthermore, the price is trading right on line with them, possibly finding support at the 10-day MA.
A bullish cross combined with a price movement above both MAs would confirm the initiation of the uptrend.
