ETH/USD daily chart

Ethereum has managed to regain its 100-MA on the daily chart; however, the TD sequential indicator hasn’t presented a buy signal yet. Another difference with Bitcoin is that the MACD hasn’t turned bullish and will require a few more days to do so. The next resistance level will most likely be $388 in the form of the 50-MA, followed by $394, the last high.

ETH/USD 12-hour chart

eth price

On the 12-hour chart, the TD sequential indicator has presented a buy signal, but Ethereum hasn’t regained its 50-MA or 100-MA. Similarly, the MACD remains bearish. The next target price for the smart-contracts giant will be $374, the 50-MA, and $388, the 100-MA. ETH price needs to regain at least one of them as support. 

Ethereum IOMAP Chart

eth price

Looking at the IOMAP chart, we can see that the next resistance point would be at $363, where 445,000 addresses bought almost 10 million Ethereum coins. On the other hand, there isn’t much support on the way down compared to the resistance at $363, as only 1.75 million ETH coins were bought at $341.

Nonetheless, Ethereum price has exploded above several resistance levels in the short term and turned its MACD bullishly. The next resistance is at $363, which coincides with the IOMAP chart and both the 100-MA and the 50-MA.

Ethereum bulls need to pay close attention to the nearest support levels at $341 and below as they aren’t too strong. In the short-term, the ETH price will most likely continue trending upwards until $363, the most critical resistance area in the short-term.

For Bitcoin, investors need to look at $10,870 as the first resistance level and then $11,178. A bearish break below $10,542 could be indicative of short-term weakness.
