The past three weeks of the positive move has been revealed on the 4-hours RSI, which is now trading above the 50 level. A break below this level may lead the market to a significant drop to the oversold territory. On a short move, the price is likely to meet support at $210 and $200 levels.

On the upside, we can expect a bullish continuation to $280and $300 resistance levels. Meanwhile, the 4-hours Stochastic RSI is suggested to be bearish; revealing the sharp drop in the market. As of now, ETHUSD market is still in a bullish territory despite the recent sharp drop.

We can also see the bullish confirmation on the red 21-day moving average which was crossed up three days ago; now trending below the price action with the positive move. Resuming the upward rally, the next likely resistance we can expect the price is the 0.035BTC and 0.037BTC levels.

However, the 4-hours RSI indicator rests at the overbought zone with a potential fall which may lead the trend to the oversold. Confirming on the 4-hours Stochastic RSI, ETH traded at the overbought as the sellers are around the corner.
