It fell lower and traded near the $43.30 level. A new weekly and monthly low was formed at $43.35 from where a recovery was initiated. The price moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $51.39 high to $43.35 low.
However, it is struggling and may face resistance near $47 and $48. An initial hurdle is near the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $51.39 high to $43.35 low at $46.42. However, the most important one is near $49. Since, there is a bearish trend line with resistance at $49.80 formed on the hourly chart (ETH/USD, data feed via SimpleFX).
