  • The pair is likely to face a strong resistance near the $200 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Ethereum price is slowly recovering against the US Dollar and bitcoin. ETH/USD buyers could face a tough challenge near the $190-200 resistance zone.

Ethereum Price Resistance

Yesterday, we saw a downside break below the $175 level in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded towards the $165 support and found bids near the $168 level. Later, the price started an upside correction and moved back above the $175 level. During the upside, the price also broke the $180 resistance. It opened the doors for a push above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $199 high to $168 low.

More importantly, there was a break above a major declining channel with resistance at $183 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The price even spiked above the $188-190 resistance zone. However, the price faced a strong resistance near the $192 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Moreover, the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $199 high to $168 low is acting as a resistance. It seems like the price could dip a few points back towards the broken channel at $182-183.
