Looking at the ETH/USD 1-day chart:
- Since our previous ETH/USD analysis, Ethereum continued to surge above $200 and broke above the congestion at the 100-days and 200-days EMA to reach the resistance at $225.30. However, it has since rolled over and it rests at the 100-days EMA.
- From above: The nearest level of resistance lies at $225. Above this, resistance is found at $235, $240, $248, and $250. Higher resistance above $250 is located at $259.97 (1.618 Fib Extension), $271.70, $278.95, and $298.43 (bearish .5 Fib Retracement).
- From below: The nearest level of support lies near to where the market is currently trading at $208(provided by 100-days and 200-days EMA). Beneath this, support is located at $201.91, $200, $193.66, and $187.82 (short term .618 Fib Retracement). Support below that is expected at $180, $171.97, and $165.23.
- The trading volume has increased during September but has started to fall over the past 3 days.
- The RSI has slipped from overbought conditions but remains above the 50 level. If the RSI can hold the 50 level, we can expect ETHUSD to rebound at $200 or $187. Similarly, the Stochastic RSI has provided a bearish crossover signal as we anticipate a small retracement toward $201 or $187.
