Ethereum Price Sighting Break
Ethereum price ETH started a correction yesterday versus the USD, and moved down. There was a downside move, which took the price towards the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $10.31 low to $11.18 high. The stated level acted as a support area and provided bids. The price after ranging for some time started moving back higher.
Currently, the ETH/USD pair is facing a couple of important resistance levels. On the upside, the most important one is around a minor bearish trend line formed on the hourly chart (data feed via SimpleFX) of ETH/USD. The second one is also just around the trend line in the form of the 100 hourly simple moving average. All in all, the price is currently testing a breakout level. If the ETH buyers manage to clear it, then it would call for more gains in the near term.
On the downside, a break below yesterday’s low may take the price towards the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $10.31 low to $11.18 high. In my view, there is a chance of a break higher if the bulls gain pace.
