It seems like there is a short-term contracting triangle forming with resistance at $299 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The triangle resistance is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $303.63 high to $292.52 low. Once there is a close above the triangle resistance and $300, the pair should retest the $302-304 resistance zone.

The price is currently closing above the 100 hourly simple moving average and $299. Therefore, there are chances of an upside swing in the short term towards $305-308.
