ETH/USD Long Term Bias : Ranging
The ETH/USD pair had been in a range-bound move after the last bearish impulse in August. In the first instance, the price made an upward correction which was resisted at the $220. Consequent to that, the coin nosedived to the previous low at $160. Presently, the coin is fluctuating between the levels of $160 and $200. Recently, in October after the bulls took control of the price, the coin is now consolidating between the levels of $177 and $195.
Every time the market tests the $195 resistance, the coin will retrace to a low at $177. This has been the price situation in recent times. Nonetheless, if the price breaks the $200 price level, ETH will rally to $220. Also, if the upward move is sustained above $220, Ethereum will recommence its uptrend movement. ETH will be regarded as out of the range-bound zone. Meanwhile, the fluctuations will continue as long the coin is within the current price range.
