Ethereum (ETH) Holding Key Support But For How Long?
- Ethereum price is trading nicely above the key $182 and $180 support levels against the US Dollar.
- The price is currently facing many resistances such as $187, $188 and $190.
- Recently, there was a break above a connecting bearish trend line with resistance near $185 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
- Bitcoin is holding the $8,650 support, but it remains at a risk of more downsides.
Ethereum price is still stuck in a broad range versus the US Dollar, while bitcoin is facing selling pressure. ETH price might recover higher unless the bulls fail near $180.
Ethereum Price Analysis
In the past three sessions, there were mostly range moves in Ethereum above the $182 support against the US Dollar. ETH tested the $182 support recently, settled below the 100 hourly simple moving average, and it is currently recovering higher.
It corrected above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $192 swing high to $182 low. Moreover, there was a break above a connecting bearish trend line with resistance near $185 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.
However, the price faced a strong resistance near the $187 level. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $192 swing high to $182 low.
At the outset, Ethereum is trading with a bearish angle below $187 and the 100 hourly SMA. It might continue to decline, but there are many supports on the downside, starting with $184.
The next key support is near the $182 area, where the bulls are likely to take a stand. To push the price further into a bearish zone, the bears need to gain pace below the $182 and $180 support levels.
On the upside, the $187 level and the 100 hourly SMA are initial hurdles. A convincing break above the $187 and $188 resistance levels could push the price towards the $192 high.
Finally, a clear break above the $192 level is must for upside continuation. The next key resistance are near the $198 and $200 levels, above which it could test $205.
Looking at the chart, Ethereum price is showing a few positive signs, but it is facing a lot of hurdles such as $187, $188 and $190. On the downside, the $182 and $180 support levels hold the key. If there is a breakdown below $180, the price may perhaps decline towards $168.

Analyst: Ethereum Still on Track for Move to $260 as Network Activity Spikes
Ethereum has been closely tracking Bitcoin’s price action over the past several days and weeks, and this correlation has persisted when ETH dropped overnight as BTC was met with significant selling pressure within the lower-$9,000 region, which subsequently sent it reeling down to $8,700.
Bitcoin’s current bearishness has caused Ethereum to show similarly bearish signs, although one analyst is still holding strong that ETH is on track to surge as high as $260 in the near-term.
Ethereum Fails to Break Above $190 as Crypto Markets Face Increasing Selling Pressure
At the time of writing, Ethereum is trading down nominally at its current price of $187, which marks a slight retrace from its daily highs of over $190 that were set yesterday alongside Bitcoin’s surge to $9,300 – which proved to be short-lived as BTC has since retraced to $8,700.
Despite showing signs of some bearishness on a short time frame, it is imperative to note that Ethereum has climbed significantly from its one-month lows of under $160 that were set in late-October concurrently with Bitcoin’s drop to lows of $7,300.
ETH rapidly surged shortly after setting these lows, with its gains being fueled by BTC’s meteoric rally that sent it as high as $10,600 before it retraced back into the $9,000 region.
One bullish factor that could provide Ethereum’s bulls with some ammunition in the mid-term is the fact that the cryptocurrency’s network activity has been incredibly strong as of late, with its total daily gas used hitting an all-time-high this past September.
“Yesterday, the Ethereum network processed the most activity in its history,” one popular figure within the Ethereum community noted in a tweet from September.
Will ETH Target $260 Next?
As for where this underlying fundamental bullishness could send ETH’s price, one popular cryptocurrency analyst believes that Ethereum is currently on track to visit $260 next.
Josh Olszewicz, a well-respected analyst on Twitter, explained that ETH will be “good to go” towards this price target once it breaks above the resistance it currently faces between $188 and $198.
“1D $ETH: 404: volume not found. e2e continues to grind towards inevitability. should b g2g past res of 188-198. hf scheduled dec 4th,” he explained while referencing the chart seen below.
In the near-term, it is probable that Ethereum’s price action will largely be guided by that of Bitcoin, but assuming that BTC finds some stability or even some tempered upwards momentum, then investors may watch ETH post significant gains.
Ethereum Classic (ETC) Marks Tremendous Fall and Touches $4.9
Ethereum Classic is back to the level from where it started yesterday, i.e., $4.9. There is no sign of improvement in the coin. The intraday traders are expected to close the day with a loss.
Yesterday, ETC coin was seen touching a high at $5.09 and later dropping to the lowest at $4.95. Well, the coin has already breached yesterday’s low.
Ethereum Classic Price Prediction:
Yesterday, Ethereum Classic started the day at $4.94. The price immediately fell to $4.91 by 0.55%. Further, the coin escalated to $5.02 by 2.16%. The ETC coin couldn’t hold itself at the level and started falling. The price recovered in the later hours and went up to $5.10 by 2.19%.
The price slipped to $4.9 by 2.18%. The closing hours brought some recovery and closed at $5.06 by 1.29%. The intraday movement in Ethereum Classic price brought a 2.34% escalation. Today, ETC coin is registering fall from the opening hours. The price moved from $5.06 to $4.91 by 2.91% drop.
Ethereum Classic is currently under heavy market pressure. The currency has breached the immediate support at $4.97 and sliding towards the next support level at $4.89. There is a strong possibility that ETC might violate the major support level at $4.83.
Ethereum Classic is usually suggested for long-term investment. The short-term period doesn’t go well with the coin. However, keeping in mind the current scenario, we would suggest the traders stay put and wait for the market to attain stability.
