Ethereum Price Resistance
After a sharp decline, ETH price found support around the $500 level against the US Dollar. The price traded as low as $503.04 before forming a short-term support. Later, it started an upside correction and traded above the $515 level. There was also a break above the 23.6% fib retracement level of the last decline from the $565 swing high to the $503 low.
However, there are many barriers on the upside near the $540 level. More importantly, yesterday’s highlighted key bearish trend line is intact with resistance at $545 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The same trend line resistance coincides with the 50% fib retracement level of the last decline from the $565 swing high to the $503 low. Therefore, if the price continues to move higher, it is likely to find sellers near the $540 and $545 resistance levels. Above this last, the next major hurdle for buyers is near the $560 level.
Looking at the chart, the price is showing recovery signs above the $510 level. However, the currently recovery could face heavy selling interest on the upside near below the $560 level. On the downside, a break below the $500 handle could accelerate declines in the near term towards $450.
