Ethereum Price Resistance

There was a decent rise from the $835 swing low in ETH price against the US Dollar. The price moved above the $850 resistance and even settled above the 100 hourly simple moving average. There was also a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $875 swing high to $835 low. These are positive signs for ETH buyers, but the price is facing a major resistance near $865-870.

At the moment, the price is attempting a break above yesterday’s highlighted major bearish trend line with current resistance at $866 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Moreover, the pair must break the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $875 swing high to $835 low. If there is a break above the trend line resistance and $870, there could be more gains. The next resistance above $870 is near $885. However, the price may test the 1.236 fib extension of the last decline from the $875 swing high to $835 low at $886.
