Ethereum Price Support

There was a decent start to an upside wave from the $370 level in ETH price against the US Dollar. The price gained momentum and it was able to break a major resistance near the $390-395 zone. It also cleared the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $430 high to $360 low. It opened the doors for more gains and the price moved above the $400 level.

More importantly, yesterday’s highlighted major bearish trend line with resistance at $395 was breached on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair traded as high as $417.84 before it faced sellers. Later, a downside correction was initiated and the price moved below $410. It also traded below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $359 low to $417 high. However, there is a major support near the $400 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
