Ethereum Price Stands At $1,299, Will The Bulls Show Up Now?

The Ethereum price was rejected at $1,299 as it retraced its movement over the last day. ETH’s chart has seen very little price movement in the last 24 hour. Ethereum’s price will rise to $1,200 if it continues to trade laterally.

Bitcoin remained largely unchanged over the past 24 hours. Most altcoins also behaved the same. Ethereum’s technical outlook showed that bulls don’t control the market. The constant rejection of Ethereum at $1,300 was the reason.

In the absence of demand, Ethereum will oscillate between $1,260 and 1,360 prices. In case the price momentum doesn’t pick up in the next trading sessions, ETH could even travel below the $1,200 support line.

ETH must break the $1,360 level in order for the bearish pressures to subside. For a time, it must trade at or above this level. Global cryptocurrency market capitalization today stands at $962 Billion. 0.3% negative change in the last 24 hours.

One-day Chart for Ethereum Price Analysis

At the time of writing, ETH was at $1290. As sellers took control, the altcoin was unable to surpass $1300 resistance.

It was trading at $1,300 as immediate resistance, which suggests that Ethereum could reach the $1,360 ceiling. A move above the $1,360 level will make the bulls come back on Ethereum’s chart.

However, local support for altcoins was around $1,268. If the demand for the coin doesn’t come back over the next trading sessions, Ethereum is moving south.

The $1,268 level is the minimum threshold for the cryptocurrency to trade. A breach below that point will result in the coin trading at $1.200. In the last session, Ethereum trade volume fell, which indicates bearishness and increased selling pressure.
