Ethereum price is trading in a range-bound move. ETH bulls need to gain strength above $152 to start a solid upward move in the coming days.
Ethereum Price Medium-Term Analysis
Yesterday December 9, the price of Ethereum (ETH) was in a bullish trend. Buyers were able to breach a major bullish trend line with support near $148 and pushed the price towards the resistance level of $152 level.
After the bulls made two attempts to clear the $152 resistance failed, Ethereum price dropped from the $152 swing high to $143 swing low.
At the time of writing, Ethereum price is trading at the $146 level below the 9-day and 21-day Moving Averages (MA).
On the upside, if the bulls intensify the effort, the coin will rise and retest the $152 price level. A break above the $152 resistance could ETH price towards the $158 level and beyond.
On the other hand, if the bulls fail to continue the uptrend, the crypto’ price will find support at the $143 level. A break below this level might put a lot of pressure on the bulls.
Meanwhile, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) line and the signal line are below the zero line which indicates a sell signal.
