Ethereum Price Resistances

After trading as low as $259.17, ETH price found support against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair started moving higher with most range moves above the $270 level. It cleared the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $301 swing high to $260 swing low. However, the upside move faced a lot of resistance near $280, $281, and 100 hourly simple moving average.

Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $301 swing high to $260 swing low also acted as a strong resistance. The price is currently trading in a range above the $270 level, but there are a few positive signs as well. There is also a short-term ascending channel forming with support at $271 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. On the upside, the price has to break the $281 resistance and climb above the 100 hourly SMA to gain traction. Above this, the price is likely to test the $290 resistance in the near term. On the downside, the channel support is at $271, below which, the price may decline back to $260.
