Ethereum Price Bullish Moves
Yesterday, there was a close above the $455 resistance in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair gained nicely and later corrected a few points towards the $445 level. There was a test of the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $430 low to $456 high. Buyers appeared and pushed the price above the last swing high. More importantly, there was a break above a few important resistance such as $450 and $460.
A high was formed at $480.50 and the price is currently following a nice uptrend. It seems like there is a short-term ascending channel forming with support at $475 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Below the channel support, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $443 low to $480 high is near $471. Moreover, there is a new connecting bullish trend line forming with support at $464 on the same chart. Therefore, there are many supports forming on the downside starting with $475 and up to $460.
Looking at the chart, the price could correct a few points, but downsides are likely to be limited by the $464 level. On the upside, a break above the $480 high may perhaps open the doors for a push towards $500-510.
