Ethereum Price Resistance

There was a downside extension yesterday in ETH price against the US Dollar, taking it towards the $9.60 area. The stated level acted as a support and prevented the downside move. It is important to note that earlier, the same level was a resistance. And, now it acted as a support near $9.60, which is a positive sign. Moreover, the price bounced from the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $9.37 low to $10.37 high.

So, there is a resistance near $10.05, which also coincides with the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $10.37 high to $9.57 low.
