Ethereum is holding a major support near $ 1,150 against the US Dollar. The ETH price is consolidating and likely preparing for a massive rise above $ 1,250.



Ethereum is facing a few big hurdles around $ 1,245 and $ 1,250.

The price is likely to be above $ 1,150 and near the 100 hourly simple moving average.

There is an important contract triangle formed on the hourly ETH / USD parity with support close to $ 1,195.

Unless there is a clear break below the $ 1,150 support zone, the pair is likely to outperform Bitcoin.


Ethereum price on key support

In the past 2-3 sessions, Ethereum has made two attempts to gain strength above $ 1,250 and $ 1,280. ETH price failed to break above $ 1,250, formed a high near $ 1,270, and a new decline started recently.

There was a break below the $ 1,225 and $ 1,220 support levels. Ethereum price even dropped below the $ 1,200 level and tested the 100 hourly simple moving average. A low was formed around $ 1,184 and is currently consolidating near the $ 1,195 level.

The first major resistance is near the $ 1,250 level. The next major resistance is located at the $ 1,280 level. A close above $ 1,280 will likely open the doors for a strong rally above $ 1,300 and $ 1,350.

If Ethereum corrects below the triangle trend line and below $ 1,192, it could find strong support near the $ 1,150 level.
