Ethereum Price Analysis

This past week, there were mostly range moves above the $210 support in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded higher above the $220 and $224 levels, but it failed to hold gains. During the upside move, there was a break above the $227 level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). Moreover, the price traded above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $240 high to $213 low.

However, the upside move was protected by the $229-230 zone. Additionally, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $240 high to $213 low also acted as a resistance. The price is slowly declining and it is currently trading below the $227 level and the 100 SMA. There is also an ascending channel formed with support at $222 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD. If there is a downside break below the channel support, the price could decline towards the $220 and $214 support levels.
