Ethereum Price Analysis

Recently, there was a solid support base formed near the $219-220 zone in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair started an upside move and settled above the $222 level. There was also a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $230 high to $220 low. Moreover, the price traded above the $224 level and settled above the 100 hourly simple moving average.

However, the upside move was capped by the $225-226 resistance zone. More importantly, there is a short-term connecting bearish trend line formed with resistance at $225 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Additionally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $230 high to $220 low is also acting as a resistance. If buyers push the price above the trend line and $226, there could be more gains. The next major resistance on the upside above $226 is near the $230 level, which is also a significant pivot level. On the downside, an initial support is near the $222 level and the 100 hourly SMA.
