Ethereum Price Resistance
There was no respite for buyers as ETH price declined below the $380 and $360 support levels against the US Dollar. The price traded to a new low around the $355 level before starting an upside correction. It moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last downside move from the $419 high to $360 low. However, there are many barriers on the upside near the $385 and $390 levels.
At the moment, the price is trading just below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last downside move from the $419 high to $360 low. There is also a key connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance at $385 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair may soon break the trend line resistance to start an upside move above $390. The next hurdle could be around the $400 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. A proper close above the $400 level may ignite further gains in the near term.
On the flip side, if the price fails to move above the $385 level, there could be a downside move back towards $360. A break below $360 could even push the price below the $350 level. Below $350, the price remains at a risk of a sharp downside wave.
