ETH/USD: Bulls Continue Battle To Defend $220.

ETH is still in a neutral trading condition but a fall beneath the $200 level would certainly turn ETH bearish.

Ethereum Short Term Price Prediction

If the sellers push ETH beneath $225 and $220, the first level of support is located at $205 (.618 Fib Retracement level). This is followed up with additional support at $200 (downside 1.414 FIb Extension), and $195 (100-days EMA). Beneath this, added strong support is found at $190 (200-days EMA).

On the other side, if the bulls rebound from $225, resistance lies at $240, $250, and $270.

The RSI is showing signs of stabilizing as it starts to trade sideways beneath the 50 level. A bullish crossover signal on the Stochastic RSI would confirm that the buyers are ready to start pushing higher.

ETH/BTC: ETH Holds Above 0.025 BTC Support

Against Bitcoin, ETH dropped beneath 0.0256 BTC but found support at 0.0255 BTC. It did spike lower but managed to rebound at around 0.025 BTC and shoot back above 0.026 BTC, where it currently trades.

ETH is still within a bullish trend against BTC, however, it would need to continue above 0.027 BTC for this bull run to continue. A drop beneath 0.025 BTC would turn it bearish.

Ethereum Short Term Price Prediction

If the sellers push lower, the first 2 levels of support are located at 0.0256 BTC and 0.025 BTC. Beneath this, additional support lies at 0.0242 BTC (.382 Fib Retracement) and 0.0239 BTC.

On the other side, the first level of resistance is located at 0.027 BTC. This is followed by resistance at 0.0278 BTC, 0.0288 BTC (bearish .786 Fib Retracement), and 0.029 BTC.

The RSI has returned to the 50 level as indecision appears within the market. For a bullish recovery, the buyers must bring the RSI above 50. The Stochastic RSI has produced a bullish crossover signal and if the moving averages can start to expand, this will signal that the bulls are about to wake up.
