Ethereum Price Resistance
There was sharp rejection and a downside move in ETH price from well above $500 against the US Dollar. The price declined by more than $100 and traded below the $458 and $420 support levels. The decline was such that the price even broke $400 to trade as low as $398.04. During the downside, there was a break below a major bullish trend line with support at $462 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Later, a recovery wave was initiated and the price moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $513.75 high to $398.04 low.
The current recovery is very positive, but the pair is facing many hurdles on the upside near $465-470. The $458-465 support area could now act as a resistance. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $513.75 high to $398.04 low is around $455 to act as a resistance. It seems like there are many resistance forming toward $480 in the near term.
If the pair fails to break the $465 resistance zone, it might decline once again. On the downside, supports can be seen near $420 and $400 levels. Below $400, there can be heavy declines in ETH/USD.
