Ethereum Price Resistance

There was no respite for ETH price as it moved below the $285 and $280 support levels against the US Dollar. The price declined sharply and traded to a new monthly low at $274.84. Later, buyers succeeded in preventing further declines below $274 and the price started a short-term correction. It moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $308.79 high to $274.84 low.

However, the upside move is currently finding sellers near $287.50. The mentioned $287.50 level prevented a break on 2-3 times recently. It also represents the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $308.79 high to $274.84 low. Above $287.50, the next hurdle is near yesterday’s highlighted major bearish trend line with current resistance at $290.50 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $308.79 high to $274.84 low is near $291.81.
