From a technical perspective, ETH’s price had broken out of a bullish chart pattern over the past 72 hours. During this time, the altcoin leader escaped a bullish falling wedge pattern and continued to trade above this pattern at press time.
However, bears were attempting to prevent ETH’s price from undergoing a bullish breakout – forcing the cryptocurrency’s price to between the 9-day and 20-day EMA lines. If ETH closes today’s trading session below the 9-day EMA line, then it may be at risk of falling back within the bullish chart pattern.
Thereafter, ETH may be at risk of retesting the support level at $1,535 in the coming few days. Conversely, a daily close above the 20-day EMA line at around $1,638.99 may result in ETH entering into an upward move towards the $1,750 threshold to potentially break above the key price point.
