Ethereum Price Upside Hurdle

After a major drop, ETH price found support near the $425 level against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair formed a base and started a minor upside correction above $430. There was a spike above the $440 resistance, but buyers failed to gain momentum. Additionally, there was no proper close above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $496 high to $425 low.

The price attempted to break the $445 level on two occasions, but it failed. Above this, yesterday’s highlighted important bearish trend line is intact with resistance at $447 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Finally, above the trend line, the next hurdle for buyers is near $452 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It is also close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $496 high to $425 low. Therefore, the price is likely to struggle near the $445, $448 and $452 resistance levels.
