ETH/USD – Ether Finally Breaks August Resistance

Key Support Levels: $3350, $3200, $3000.
Key Resistance Levels: $3540, $3600, $3700.

Ethereum has been trapped inside a consolidation period since it established resistance at $3350 during mid-August. The cryptocurrency failed to overcome the resistance provided by a bearish .618 Fib Retracement and ended up forming a symmetrical triangle from there.

ETH had been trading inside this triangle pattern for the past fortnight as it dipped as low as $3000. It finally managed to break the consolidation today as it surged above the $3350 August resistance and passed $3400.
