Ethereum Price Resistance
Yesterday, there was a decent recovery in ETH price above $210 against the US Dollar. The price traded higher and tested the $223-225 resistance zone where sellers appeared. As a result, the price failed to gain pace above $223, and a short-term high was formed at $223.73. The price started correcting lower, and moved below $210 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It traded lower and even managed to move below the $200 support zone.
At the moment, the price is trading just around the $195 level. There is a new contracting triangle pattern forming with support at $194.00 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The triangle support is at $194-193. It must hold the downside move or the price could trade back towards $180. On the upside, an initial resistance is near $206 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The $206 level also coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $223 high to $188 low.
If there is a close above $210 and the 100 hourly simple moving average, the price may test the triangle resistance at $215. It looks like we may see a breakout of the triangle either above $215 or below $190 in the coming sessions.
