ETH Struggles at $1.8K But is a Pullback Incoming? (Ethereum Price Analysis)

Ethereum’s overall outlook remains bullish, but it is currently facing significant resistance and struggling to surpass it. A short-term rejection is possible before the next trend based on recent action.

The Daily Chart

Ethereum is experiencing difficulty in pushing the price above the significant resistance region of $1.8K. After reaching this crucial range, Ethereum began consolidating with no clear direction leading to dull price action.

This dynamic suggests that there is a battle between sellers and buyers, with a breakout from this range likely determining the short-term direction of ETH. However, the clear significant bearish divergence between the price and the RSI indicator suggests that there is a higher possibility for a short-term rejection before initiating the next bullish rally.

The 4-Hour Chart

The future short-term direction of Ethereum’s price remains uncertain, with recent action offering no clear indications. However, there are two crucial levels of support and resistance that Ethereum is facing: the $1.7K level as support and the channel’s upper trendline at $1.9K as resistance.

Breaking above the channel’s upper trendline would signal a bullish turn in the long-term outlook. A sharp decline and a fall below the mid-boundary level could indicate a bearish trend, with the next level of support being the $1.5K mark.

The graph below displays the 14-day moving average of the Funding Rates metric along with Ethereum’s price. Over the past few months, Ethereum has shown a bullish trend, and the overall market sentiment has turned positive. This shift in sentiment is reflected in the funding rates metric.

However, during a recent shakeout, the funding rate metric plummeted and dropped below 0 for a short period of time.

Yet after another bullish price rally, the metric has reclaimed 0 and turned green, indicating a bullish sentiment over the market. Nonetheless, Ethereum’s general bias is bullish for the mid-term, and the metric should be closely monitored to prevent losses due to sudden price drops.
