However, the volumes are also declining after giving a breakout, indicating that the price might ignore any bullish sentiment as of now.
ETH looks for a breakout
The daily chart shows ETH’s price faces a strong resistance hurdle near $1,750. ETH formed a bullish Flag and pole pattern and gave a breakout from $1,602 levels. After making a recent swing high the price is coming to retest breakout level, which is 50 points more down from its current levels.
On the hourly time frame, the price on July 28 gave a breakout with a big bullish candle along with good volumes. With an acceptance above $1,705, we can expect good momentum on the higher side. In that case, the bulls would approach $1,800.
On the other hand, if the price fell below $1635, then we can expect a fall of around $1565.
ETH’s price after giving a good impulse move is now taking a retracement on the lower time frame, indicating a sideways to the bullish trend. ETH is bullish on all time frames. Above $1,705, we can put a trade on the buy side.
Alternative Scenario: If the price started to go below $1635 amid a shift in bearish sentiment with good volumes, then we can put a trade on the sell side.
