Ethereum Price Support
Yesterday, we noticed how ETH price started a recovery above the $130 level against the US Dollar. The upside move was decent, as the price later moved above the $150 resistance as well. During the upside move, the price even surpassed the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $203.45 high to $98.35 low. It now looks set for further gains above $185 since it is holding the 100 hourly simple moving average well.
There is a steep bullish trend line on the downside with support at $181 formed on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The trend line support also coincides with the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $137.87 low to $190.17 high. So, if the price moves down, it may find support at $181-180. A break below might call for a deeper correction towards the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $137.87 low to $190.17 high.
On the upside, a break above the $191 horizontal resistance is required for further gains. If there is a rise above above $191, the next major hurdle is at $200 where buyers may be tested.
