Ethereum Price Support
Yesterday, we saw a breakout pattern formation for ETH price above $295 against the US Dollar. The price failed to remain in the positive zone and started a downside move below $301. There was a failure to break the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $302.60 high to $294.10 low. It opened the doors for a downside reaction and the price broke $298 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
The downside move was such that there was a break below yesterday’s contracting triangle with support at $296 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.
