Ethereum Price Upside Hurdles

There were mostly ranging moves above $555 in ETH price during the past few sessions against the US Dollar. The price tested the $550-555 support area on a couple of occasions, but sellers failed to break the stated zone.

Above the trend line resistance, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $607.24 high to $554.33 low is near $580.
