Ethereum Price Support

Yesterday, there were further gains above $480 in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded as high as $487.39 before starting a downside correction. The price declined and broke the $476 and $470 support levels. There was also a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $443 low to $487 high. It opened the doors for more losses and the price tested the $448-450 support area.

However, the decline was protected by a key bullish trend line with support at $450 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair is currently trading below the $465 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average. There is also a short-term connecting bearish trend line with resistance at $464. A break above the trend line, $465 and the $468 level is needed for buyers to regain control. Above this last, the price may perhaps move above the $470 level to revisit the $480 zone.
