ETH/USD – Ethereum Stalled By September High-Day Closing Price

Key Support Levels: $445, $439, $430.
Key Resistance Levels: $462.50, $475, $490.

Etheruem reached as high as $475 last Friday, where it hit the resistance at the September high-day close. From there, it headed lower over the weekend, which was largely due to Bitcoin dropping back beneath the $16,000 level and some divergence playing out that we highlighted in the last analysis.

As a result, Ethereum fell as low as $439 (August 2018 high) yesterday. The coin went on to close above the $445 support. It has since rebounded slightly to trade at $456 today.

ETH-USD Short Term Price Prediction

Looking ahead, if the buyers can push higher again, the first level of resistance lies at $462 (bearish .886 Fib Retracement). Following this, the major resistance is expected at $475 (September high-day close) and then $500.

On the other side, the first level of support lies at $445. Beneath this, support lies at $438, $430, and $420.

The RSI bounced from the mid-line to indicate that the buyers are still unwilling to give up their control of the market momentum just yet. However, the Stochastic RSI did produce a bearish crossover signal, which is a bad sign for the bulls.
