Ethereum price needs to defend a crucial support level to rebound higher
Ethereum has established an ascending triangle pattern on the 4-hour chart and climbed above the 50-SMA and most recently above the 100-SMA, which now act as support level. The digital asset has defended this last moving average several times in a row and looks ready for a rebound.
ETH/USD 4-hour chart
The next potential price target of a rebound would be the upper trendline resistance level of the pattern at $619. A breakout above this level would quickly push Ethereum price towards a high of $743.
ETH IOMAP chart
The In/Out of the Money Around Price (IOMAP) chart shows practically no resistance above $600 which adds credence to the bullish outlook. However, the most vital support area between $550 and $567 needs to hold.
A breakdown below this significant range could quickly push Ethereum price towards the lower trendline level of the triangle pattern at $560. A further breakdown below this point would put Ethereum at a price target of $443.
