Ethereum Price Resistance

There was a sudden increase in selling pressure on ETH price, which took it below the $1,000 support against the US Dollar. The downside move was initiated from the $1,150 swing high and the price moved below the $1,100 and $1,025 support levels. During the downside, there was a break below a connecting bullish trend line with support at $1,120 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. It traded as low as $942 recently and it looks set for more declines in the near term.

An initial resistance is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1,150 high to $942 low. However, the most important resistance is around the $1,025 level. The mentioned $1,025 level was a support earlier and it may now act as a resistance. Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1,150 high to $942 low is also around $1,025. Above the $1,025 level, the next hurdle is at $1,046.
