Ethereum Price Resistance
This past week we saw how Ehereum price struggled against the US Dollar, starting from the $10.84 high. There was a downside wave initiated, as the price moved below $10.50. There was also a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $9.57 low to $10.84 high. The move was so strong that the price broke the 38.2% fib level of the same wave.
The downside was paused just above the $10.10 level. There is a clear bearish trend line formed on the 4-hours chart (data feed via SimpleFX) of ETH/USD. It has a resistance near $10.40, which may continue to act as a hurdle for the ETH buyers. A break above it could start a reversal process in Ethereum price. On the downside, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $9.57 low to $10.84 high is acting as a support.
There was no proper close below the $10.10 support, as the price continued to stay above it. A break below it might call for further losses in the near term. In short, as long as the price is below the trend line or $10.40, ETH/USD remains in a downtrend.
