Ethereum Price Recovery
Yesterday, we saw a major decline in ETH price below $85 against the US Dollar. There was a sharp downside move and the price traded as low as $82.39. I mentioned that there is a chance of the price testing the 1.236 extension of the last wave from the $83.35 low to $93.49 high. It almost tested the same, traded as low as $82.39, and started a recovery. ETH/USD was successful in breaking the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $93.49 high to $82.39 low.
However, the most important break was above a major bearish trend line with resistance at $87.90 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. At the moment, the price is attempting a close above the 100 hourly simple moving average at $89. Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $93.49 high to $82.39 low is acting as a resistance and preventing further gains.
In my view, the price needs to close above the 100 hourly simple moving average and $90. If may find it difficult, so there can be a dip towards $87-85 before it makes another attempt. On the upside, the next major hurdle is near $90.87, which represents a swing high.
