Ethereum Price Support

There was a decent upside move in ETH price above the $510 and $530 levels against the US Dollar. The price traded towards the $545 and $550 resistance levels where sellers appeared. A high was formed at $549.04 before the price started a downside correction. It declined below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $484 low to $549 high. However, there are many supports on the downside above the $510 level.

An initial support is around the $515 and $516 levels. The 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $484 low to $549 high is also near $516. More importantly, there is a major bullish trend line in place with support at $510 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. An intermediate support is near the $512 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Therefore, there is a major support zone above the $510 level, which could hold declines in the near term. Below $510, the price may perhaps trade back towards the $490 level.
