Ethereum Price Support

Yesterday, we saw a solid upside move in ETH price above the $850 level against the US Dollar. The price traded to a new all-time high at $879.51 before it started a downside correction. An initial support on the downside is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $724 low to $879 high. There are very less chances of a substantial correction from the current levels below $810.

On the downside, there are two key bullish trend lines forming with support at $840 and $790 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair is currently consolidating above the first trend line and support at $840. It seems like the pair is preparing for more gains above $879. Once there is a break above the $879 high, the price could attempt a test of the $900 handle in the near term.

In terms of the support, the trend line support at $840 is important. Below $840, the price may test the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $724 low to $879 high at $801. Therefore, it is safe to say that ETH/USD remains well bid on the downside near $840 and $805.

Hourly MACD – The MACD is currently reducing the bullish slope, but remains nicely placed.

Hourly RSI – The RSI is currently moving lower from 65 towards the 50 level.

Major Support Level – $840
