Technical Indicators Signals for the Bitcoin trader

Recently there was a solid rally above the $430 level. ETH broke through the $445 and $450 resistance levels. Before the short-term consolidation, the price traded at $463.91 an ounce. However, the decline was protected by the support zone at $440 an ounce. It was important that ether did not move below the $438 mark and the 100-hour SMA. There is currently an important contraction triangle forming on the hourly chart with resistance near $455. The pair must break through the triangle resistance and the $460 to gain steam.

Ethereum Price Analysis
Looking at the chart, the price is supported near the triangle support at $ 446 an ounce. A break below $446 may trigger further falls towards $438 and the 100-hour SMA. Ether must stay above the 100-hour SMA to avoid a bearish reaction to the $430 and $425 levels in the near future. The MACD is largely neutral in the bearish zone. The RSI is currently flat above the 50 level and, like the MACD, signals a balanced Bitcoin revolution. The highest support level is at $438, while resistance is at $455.
