Technical Analysis – ETHUSD bounces off 50-day SMA

  • ETHUSD halts retreat at the 50-day SMA

  • Regains some ground after posting a double bottom

  • Momentum indicators turn neutral-to-positive

ETHUSD (Ethereum) experienced a strong rally in May, approaching its 2024 highs before undergoing a strong pullback. However, the latest decline appears to be on pause for now as the 50-day simple moving average (SMA) has held its ground twice in the past 10 days.

If the latest bounce off the 50-day SMA triggers a move to the upside, the April resistance of 3,710 could prove to be the first barricade for the bulls to overcome. A break above that zone could open the door for the recent two-month peak of 3,974. Further advances could then come to a halt at the 2024 peak of 4,094, which is also a more than two-year high.

On the flipside, bearish actions could meet initial support at the double bottom region of 3,360. Should that barrier also fail, attention may shift to the March-April support of 3,260. Slicing through that region, the price might test the March bottom of 3,060.

Overall, ETHUSD has managed to pause its recent slide supported by the 50-day SMA. However, a break above the April resistance of 3,710 is needed for the bulls to regain confidence for a full-scale recovery.
