Ethereum Price Resistance
There was a major increase in the bearish pressure for ETH price as it failed to hold the $205 support against the US Dollar. The price extended its decline from the $317 swing high and traded towards $175 first, and then recoveries were sold. Recently, the price corrected higher from the 1.236 Fib extension of the last wave from the $202 low to $317 high. It moved towards $218 where it faced sellers and resumed its downtrend.
The price is now trading below the $205 and $180 support levels. So, there is a high chance of it testing the $150-140 support zone. The 1.618 Fib extension of the last wave from the $202 low to $317 high is at $130.95, which may act as a strong support. Therefore, if the price continues to move down, the most important bid zone is around $130.
On the upside, we can keep monitoring the $205 resistance. There is also a monster bearish trend line with resistance at $205 forming on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD. If there is a recovery attempt from the current or lower levels, sellers might take a stand near $190-205. Above the trend line, the price could move back in the bullish zone for a run towards $235.
