Ethereum price analysis is negatively biased for today. However, the price rallied more than 8% this week. ETH bulls took a breather at the $1,650 level. The buyers are taking calculated steps to lift from the critical support level of around $1,420.
A pullback above the $1,600 level would invalidate the bearish sentiment as the price shows consolidation near a higher level.
- Ethereum price edges lower for the second straight day.
- A weekly close above $1,600 would bring in more gains.
- However, the downside risk remains intact below $1,500.
Ethereum price consolidates with a diminishing downside momentum
On the daily chart, ETH gave a breakdown of a bearish “Head & Shoulder” pattern, breaking down the neckline support, with rising volumes compared to previous average volumes.
The neckline support lies between $1,578 to $1,610. ETH faces heavy resistance at the pattern’s neckline. The asset takes rejection on a pullback, and faces rejection at 61.8% Fibonacci retracement, along with the 50-day exponential moving average.
If the price sustains below $1,515, then there is a higher chance of ETH even dropping toward $1,425.
On the other hand, a renewed buying pressure could result in a green candlestick. If that happens it would mean a mean reversion from the consolidation to the higher level.
ETH buyers could enjoy a quick rally toward the $1,600 mark. Further, a move above $1,722 would motivate bulls to recapture the high of August 19 at $1,848.92.
The RSI is trading below 50. When the relative strength index is below 50, it generally means that the losses are greater than the gains. Whereas, the MACD line crosses below the signal line below zero, indicating a bearish trend.
The Ethereum price analysis on the weekly chart booked gains for the first time in the previous two weeks.
The sellers remained active at the higher level pushing the price lower. The descending trend line from the highs of $4,867.81. The price rejected the bearish slopping line in April and the selling get acceleration toward the all-time low at $879.80 in June.
The formation of two consecutive inverted hammer points at a probable reversal is around the corner. We expect the price to jump toward the downside line at $1,900.
In contrast, a weekly close below $1,420 could mark the onset of another downward rally toward $1,200.
As of publication time, ETH/USD is reading at $1,554, down 1.33% for the day. The 24-hour trading volume dropped more than 37% to $107 billion. The decline in volume with the lower price is a signal of a weakening downtrend.
