Yesterday, we saw a decline in ETH price towards $42.30 against the US Dollar. Later, the price managed to find support around $42.30, and started moving higher. It is also important to note that there was no close below $42.00. And, the price found support just below the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $40.95 low to $45.61 high. So, these are positive signs, pushing the price above $43.00.
The price traded higher and moved above the $43.20 level. There was also a break above the 100 hourly SMA at $43.47. It ignited more gains and the price moved towards $44.20. At the moment, the price is struggling to clear a major hurdle near $44.00.
