Ethereum Price Range

We witnessed a decent recovery from the $256.65 low in ETH price against the US Dollar. The price moved higher above the $340 and $350 resistance levels and recently traded close to the $375 level. It faced sellers near $375 and started a correction. Actually, a connecting bearish trend line with resistance at $370 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD acted as a hurdle. It pushed the price below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $256 low to $375 high.

At the moment, the price is holding a major support at $335 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. There is also a short-term bullish trend line just around $335. So, it looks like the $335 support and the 100 hourly SMA may act as a crucial pivot for ETH. As long as the price is above $335, there can be a retest of the trend line resistance at $370.

On the other hand, a break below $335 could take the price towards the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $256 low to $375 high at $315. The overall picture suggests a range pattern for ETH/USD above $330-335 until the next move.
