The recent performance of the Ethereum price on the 4-hour chart indicates a mix of signals, suggesting both opportunities and caution for traders.

Ethereum Price Technical Overview



The 9 Exponential Moving Average (EMA) has been relatively stable, hovering around $2,993.43 to $2,970.69, while the 20 EMA has been slightly higher, ranging from $3,040.12 to $3,020.66. This alignment indicates a short-term bearish trend since the price is trading below the 20 EMA, but the price is nearing the 9 EMA, suggesting a possible bullish reversal.

Key support levels for the Ethereum price are identified at $2,974.21, $2,969.0, and $2,946.8. These levels have previously acted as strong floors where the price has found buying interest. If Ethereum fails to hold above these levels, it could signal further downside.

On the upside, resistance levels are marked at $3,042.26, $3,066.83, and $3,104.1. A break above these levels would indicate strong bullish momentum and could set the stage for a rally towards higher price targets. The immediate focus should be on whether ETH can surpass the $3,042.26 resistance level, which could trigger further upward movement.

The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator is showing a slightly bullish signal. The MACD line has been trending upwards from -65.84 to -50.74, while the signal line has moved from -73.53 to -65.93. Concurrently, histogram values also indicate decreasing bearish momentum, suggesting a potential bullish crossover in the near future.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) values have ranged from 30.85 to 50.25, indicating that the Ethereum price was oversold but is now approaching a more neutral territory. An RSI value closer to 50 typically suggests that the asset is neither overbought nor oversold, providing a balanced outlook.

Potential Trade Opportunities

For traders looking to enter a long position, a break and close above the $3,042.26 resistance level could be a good entry point, with targets set at $3,066.83 and $3,104.1. Stop-loss orders could be placed just below the support level at $2,974.21 to manage risk.

Conversely, for those considering short positions, a rejection at the resistance level of $3,042.26 could offer an entry opportunity, with potential targets at the support levels of $2,974.21, $2,969.0, and $2,946.8. A stop-loss just above the resistance at $3,066.83 could help mitigate potential losses.

In conclusion, while ETH shows signs of potential bullish reversal, traders should remain cautious and monitor key support and resistance levels closely. The mixed signals from technical indicators suggest that market participants should be prepared for both upward and downward movements.
