Ethereum Price Upside Move

There was no stopping ETH price as it moved above the $970 resistance against the US Dollar. The price traded close to the $1000 level and formed a new high at $991.59. Later, a downside move was initiated and the price dropped by around $80 to trade as low as $910.50. Buyers appeared above the $900 level and prevented further declines in ETH. A fresh upside wave was initiated and the price moved above the $950 level.

It was successful in breaking the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $991 high to $910 low. On the downside, there is a monster bullish trend line forming with support at $960 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair is likely to continue higher toward $1000 in the near term. It could even break it to gain traction toward $1100. At the moment, it is struggling to settle above the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $991 high to $910 low. Once it succeeds, there can be a push above $1000.
