Ethereum Price Support

There was a major downside reaction yesterday below the $400 level in ETH price against the US Dollar. The price traded towards the $385 level and formed a low near $386. There was a solid buying interest noted around the $385-386 levels, resulting in an upside move. Buyers pushed the price higher and there was a break above the $400 resistance.

There was also a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $433 high to $385 swing low. At the moment, the price is trading well above the $400 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. More importantly, there is a short-term ascending channel forming with support at $412 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. As long as the pair is following the channel and support at $410, there could be more gains towards $425 and $430.

On the other hand, if there is a downside break below $410, the price may retest the $400 support zone. The most important support now is around the $396 level and the 100 hourly SMA.
