Ethereum Price Support

After a successful hard fork, there was no major upside move in ETH price above $340 against the US Dollar. The price remained below the $350 level and started a downside move. Initially, there was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $317.31 low to $350.52 high. It opened the doors for more losses below the $340 level. During the downside, there was a break below a key bullish trend line with support at $332 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.

The pair even broke the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $317.31 low to $350.52 high. Later, it settled below $325 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. At the moment, the price is trading just above the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $317.31 low to $350.52 high. Therefore, there are chances of ETH testing the last swing low of $317 once again.
