There was even a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $275 swing low to $302 high. However, losses were protected by the $284 support zone and the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the same wave.
The price formed a support base near $284 and it is currently trading above $290 and the 100 hourly SMA.

More importantly, yesterday’s highlighted crucial bearish trend line is intact with resistance near $292 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Above the trend line, the next resistance is near the $294 level. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $302 high to $284 low.
