However, the price is facing a lot of challenges on the upside near the $490 and $500 levels. There is also a declining channel in place with resistance near the $480 level on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Above the channel resistance, the next hurdle for buyers is near the $496 level. It represents the 50% fib retracement level of the last decline from the $545 high to $446 low.
