There is a price tussle between bulls and bears

Yesterday, Ethereum retraced to $420 and rebounded to reach a high of $440. Today, after retesting the $440 high, Ethereum resumed a downward move to retest the $420 low.

There is a price tussle between bulls and bears above the current support. There is the likelihood of a further price fall, once the $420 support cracks. Ether will drop to $380 low. 

Alternatively, if the current support holds, the uptrend will resume retesting the $440 resistance. The biggest altcoin will have another chance to rise to $500 if buyers break the $440 resistance. Today, ETH is hovering above the $420 support as buyers and sellers are undecided about the direction of the market.

Ethereum indicator analysis 

Ethereum price is retracing downward, and if it breaks and closes below the support line, the coin may resume a downward move. Otherwise, the uptrend will resume. Ether is also trading in the overpriced region above the 80% range of daily stochastic. The bands are pointing downward indicating the recent downward move.


Key Resistance Zones: $220, $240, $260

Key Support Zones: $160, $140, $120

What is the next direction for Ethereum?

The biggest altcoin is retracing to the next support. However, in the August 2 uptrend, a bearish candlestick (red candle body) tested the 0.50 Fibonacci retracement level. This retracement candle indicates that the market will rise and reach level 2.0 Fibonacci extension level. That is, Ether will reach a high of $500.
