Ethereum Price Resistances

After forming a base near the $249-250 zone, ETH price started an upside correction against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded higher and broke the $275 and $300 resistance levels. It even moved above the $315 level and traded as high as $322. Later, buyers lost the control, resulting in a fresh decline. The price dropped below the 23.6% fib retracement level of the last wave from the $249 low to $322 high.

More importantly, it declined back below the $300 level, which is not a good sign. However, the downside move was protected by the $285 support. It represents the 50% fib retracement level of the last wave from the $249 low to $322 high. The price is currently consolidating above the $285 level and is preparing for the next move. If sellers push the price below $285, it could increase selling pressure. The next supports are $279, $275 and $262. On the upside, there is a key connecting bearish trend line in place with current resistance at $311 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD.
