  • The pair may correct higher in the short term, but upsides are likely to be capped by $650-655.

Ethereum price declined heavily against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD is now well below $655 and is eyeing more downsides in the near term.

Ethereum Price Resistance

The past few sessions were pretty bearish as ETH price failed to break above the $700 resistance level against the US Dollar. The price started a major downside move and broke the $685 and $655 support levels. The decline was such that the price settled below $650 and is currently trading below 100 hourly simple moving average. It traded as low as $625.45 recently and is currently in a bearish zone.

It may correct a few points towards the previous support near $655. An initial resistance is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $697 high to $625 low. Moreover, there is also a new connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance at $655 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The same trend line is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $697 high to $625 low. Therefore, if the price moves higher, it is likely to face sellers near $655, $661 and $665.
