Ethereum penetrated the consolidation pattern this week, which was in play since mid-August when the coin failed to break resistance at $3350. This resulted in it forming a symmetrical triangle pattern for the second half of August and gaining about 17% in a week.
On Tuesday, ETH bounced from the 20-day MA and broke above the symmetrical triangle. It then continued to break the August resistance at $3350 (bearish .618 Fib) to climb above $3400.
It went higher yesterday as it surged from $3400 to reach higher $3825 (1.272 Fib Extension). It has since dropped from the high and is trading around $3765.
ETH-USD Short Term Price Prediction
Looking ahead, if the bulls break $3825 (1.272 Fib Extension), the first resistance lies at $4000. This is followed by $4060 (1.414 Fib Extension), $4200 (1.414 Fib Extension – orange), $4280 (1.618 Fib Extension – purple), and $4400.
On the other side, the first support lies at $3640 (.236 Fib). This is followed by $3510 (.382 Fib), $3400 (.5 Fib), and $3300 (20-day MA).
