Ethereum Price Support
Yesterday, there was a solid support base formed near $483-485 in ETH price against the US Dollar. The price started an upside move and traded above the $495 resistance level. It opened the doors for more gains and the price even jumped above the $500 handle and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Additionally, there was a break above the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $526 high to $481 low.
During the upside move, there was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance at $498 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair was able to find bids above the $510 resistance and it traded close to the $526 swing high. At the moment, the price is consolidating gains below $526. An initial support is around the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $481 low to $526 high. However, the most important support is near the $504 level and the 100 hourly SMA.
