Ethereum Price Resistance

Yesterday, there were many rejections around the $214-216 area in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair failed to close above the $216 level and dived sharply. It broke the $206 and $200 support levels and traded as low as $197. Later, it recovered sharply and moved back above the $200 level. It revisited the $214 resistance, which acted as a resistance.

More importantly, yesterday’s highlighted important bearish trend line is active with resistance at $212 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair is finding a strong resistance near the trend line and $216. It is currently trading near the 100 hourly simple moving average and $208. It already broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $197 low to $213 high. It seems like the price may continue to move down towards the $205 and $204 levels. These are close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $197 low to $213 high. If there is a downside break below $204, the price could retest $200.
