Ethereum Price Trend

It recovered and traded above the $840 resistance level. The best part was a break and close above the $848 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

During the upside move, there was a break above a crucial bearish trend line with resistance at $848 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair traded as high as $855 before correcting a few points. It tested the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $826 low to $855 high.

Moreover, on the downside, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $826 low to $855 high is at $841. Therefore, the $840-841 zone is a major support area.
