ETH/USD 4-hour chart
Ethereum has clearly lost the 4-hour 12-EMA and the 26-EMA which have crossed bearishly. The 12-EMA at $238.27 is now acting as a resistance level and will be the first thing to beat for the bulls. Besides the EMAs, there isn’t really a lot of resistance points towards $250 and this is certainly not the first attempt by the bears to take over.
ETH/USD 1-hour chart
The hourly chart is in an uptrend at the time of writing and ETH is above the 12-EMA and the 26-EMA. Both EMAs are looking for a bull cross in the next six hours if bulls can keep up the pace.
