Ethereum Price Prediction: ETH/USD free-falls after rejection at $245 – Confluence Detector

  • Ethereum price drops under $240 following rejection at $245.
  • ETH/USD downside is protected by the 200 SMA at $245, $225 and $218.

 Ethereum price broke out of the consolidation witnessed in the first week of July between the key support at $225 and the resistance at $230. Boosting the price action above $235 and $240 was the momentum from overcoming the resistance at the 200 SMA in the 4-hour chart. Ether extended the bullish leg towards $245 but due to increased selling pressure, a reversal followed.

At the time of writing, ETH/USD is spiraling under $240. It is trading at $238 after a 1.13% loss on the day. The trend has a bearish bias which could eventually pull the price under $235. The negative technical picture is highlighted by the RSI’s retreat from the overbought region.

The MACD also hit a snag under 4.00 after recovery from levels marginally below the midline as encountered on July 5. A bullish divergence is still visible which shows that buying power has not been ousted entirely. In case the losses continue, the 2-hour chart places support at the 200 SMA ($235), the main support at $225 and the primary support at $215.
