Ethereum Price Upside Hurdle

There was a major downside move from well above $1,100 in ETH price against the US Dollar. The price declined heavily and moved below the $1,100 and $1,020 support levels. During the downside move, there was a break below a major bullish trend line with support at $1,115 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD. The pair traded below the $900 level and is currently well below the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).

A low was formed at $740 from where an upside correction was initiated. The pair managed to recover above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last major decline from the $1,150 high to $740 low. However, there are many resistances on the upside around the $1,020 level. There is a bearish trend line on the same chart with resistance at $1,025. The trend line resistance at $1,025 is also near the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).
