- Ethereum price shows a slowdown in momentum as it approaches the $1,187 resistance level.
- A successful flip of this hurdle is necessary for market makers to collect liquidity resting above the $1,290 and $1,350 levels.
- If ETH produces a daily candlestick close below the $1,067 support level, it will invalidate the bullish thesis.
Ethereum price has stopped in its tracks as it approaches a critical hurdle. The drop in momentum can be attributed to Bitcoin’s slump in buying pressure. Regardless, a decisive flip of the immediate barrier could trigger a minor run-up for ETH.
Ethereum price remains focussed on its target
Ethereum price rallied 7% after the Momentum Reversal Signal indicator flashed a buy signal on November 22. This crucial signal, along with a bullish divergence, was noted in our previous publication. As ETH hovers below the $1,187 hurdle, investors should note that there is a decline in momentum due to the holidays in the US.
This outlook might continue as the weekend approaches, but Ethereum price traders should await a flip of the $1,187 hurdle into a support floor to make a move. If successful, ETH can make its way to equal highs formed at $1,290 and $1,350.
A sweep of the buy-stop liquidity could trap short sellers and induce a spike in buying pressure that could potentially propel Ethereum price to tag the $1,400 psychological level.
ETH/USDT 1-day chart
While things are looking up for Ethereum price, rejection at $1,197 followed by a daily candlestick close below $1,073 will create a lower low. This development will invalidate the bullish thesis for ETH and catalyze a spike in selling pressure.
Such a move could see Ethereum price revisit the equal lows at $998.
