ETH price traded higher on Friday as the bulls are back in action, but faces rejection near the higher level on weekend. The price had given a good breakout from its ‘Flag & Pole Pattern’. The price is near the highs of June 10, thus, facing resistance that was earlier acted as support. However, the volumes are also declining after giving a breakout, indicating that the price might ignore any bullish sentiment as of now.

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.
