Ethereum Price Support
There was a decent upside move from the $429 swing low in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded higher and broke the $435 and $440 resistance levels to move into a bullish zone. The upside move was such that the price tested an important resistance area near $455. A high was formed at $454.82 before the price started a downside correction.
It traded below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $429 low to $454 high. However, there are many supports on the downside near the $438 level. An initial support is near $442, which is the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $429 low to $454 high. Below this, the $440 support may provide support along with the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Therefore, it seems like there are many supports on the downside near the $438-442 zone.
