Ethereum Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw the start of a downside move from the $236-238 zone in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair declined and broke the $225 and $220 support levels. Later, there was a close below the $220 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price tested the $204 level and later corrected higher. There was a push above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $246 high to $204 low.

However, the price failed to move above the $220 and $222 levels. More importantly, there are two bearish trend lines in place with resistance at $220 and $234 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Above the first trend line, the next resistance is near $224. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $246 high to $204 low. Moreover, the 100 hourly SMA is also near $224. Therefore, buyers are likely to struggle near the $224 and $225 levels in the near term.
