Ethereum Price Support

Yesterday, we saw a major decline in ETH price to well below $1,040 against the US Dollar. The price traded near the $1,000 level and formed a low at $1,009. Later, an upside correction was initiated and the price was able to move above $1,060. There was also a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last major drop from the $1,229 high to $1,009 low. It opened the doors for more gains and the price moved above $1,075.

Most importantly, yesterday’s highlighted major bearish trend line with resistance at $1,090 was broken on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. At the moment, the price is trading above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last major drop from the $1,229 high to $1,009 low. There are a lot of positive signs above $1,110, but the price has to break the 100 hourly simple moving average at $1,130. Once there is an hourly close above $1,130 and 100 SMA, the price could move further higher.
