Ethereum Price Uptrend

Yesterday, we saw a decent start of an upside move above $425 in ETH price against the US Dollar. The price gained upside momentum and it succeeded in breaking a crucial pivot level at $440. It cleared the way for more gains and the price rocketed above the $480 level. It even pierced the $500 level and traded as high as $503.34. At the moment, the price is consolidating gains above the $480 level.

It recently declined below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $450 low to $503 high. However, the downside correction was limited by the $480-484 support area. Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $450 low to $503 high acted as a support. It seems like there is a solid support forming above the $480 level. There is also a major bullish trend line forming with support at $440 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.
