Ethereum’s long-term technical picture
Looking technically, ETH/USD needs to recover above $170.00 to mitigate the initial pressure and proceed towards the next short-term barrier created by the middle line of one-hour Bollinger Band at $172.50. Once it is out of the way, the upside is likely to gain traction with the next focus on $191.00. This barrier is created by a confluence of SMA50 (Simple Moving Average) and the upper line of the Bollinger Band on one-hour chart. The critical resistance awaits the bulls on approach to psychological $200.00.
On the downside, a retreat towards the recent low of $155.62 will worsen the short-term technical picture and increase the downside pressure on the coin. The next bears’ target comes at $150.00, which is the lowest level since April. It is followed by the lower line of weekly Bollinger Band at $142.50.
