Ethereum Price Trend

Yesterday, there was a decent upside move above the $465 resistance in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded above the $480 level, but the upsides were capped by the $484 level. A high was formed at $484.22 and the price corrected lower. It moved below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $449 low to $484 high.

However, declines were supported near the $455-460 zone. More importantly, the 100 hourly simple moving average also acted as a strong support near the $460 zone. The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $449 low to $484 high also played its part in stopping the last decline. On the downside, there is a major bullish trend line formed with support at $454 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Therefore, it seems like the pair is well supported above the $450 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
