Ethereum Price Trend
There was a sharp upside move from the $620 support zone in ETH price against the US Dollar. The price started rallying and moved above the $650, $680 and $720 resistance levels. Buyers took control and the price even climbed above the $800 level. The current uptrend is very strong with swing supports around the $800 and $660 levels.
The recent high was formed at $833.56 from where the price started a downside correction. It is still trading above the $800 level with many positive signs. There is also an ascending channel with support at $800 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD. Below the channel support, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $621 low to $838 high is at $783. Therefore, if the price continues to correct lower, it may find support near $800 and $782-783 in the near term. Below $782, the price could test the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $621 low to $838 high at $727.
The above chart also suggests that the price is placed nicely above $800. On the upside, a break above the recent high of $838 may perhaps push the price above the $850 level in the near term.
