Ethereum Price Analysis

Recently, there was a minor upside move from the $184 swing low in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded above the $190 and $192 resistance levels. However, the upside move was capped by the $199-200 area. The price failed to break the $200 zone and slowly turned south. It declined below the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $184 low to $199 high.

However, buyers appeared near the $188-190 area. Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $184 low to $199 high also acted as a support. Later, the price jumped higher and moved above the $190 and $197 resistance levels with a positive angle. More importantly, the price surpassed a strong resistance near the $200 level. There was also a break above a key bearish trend line with resistance at $197 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Above the trend line, the 100 hourly simple moving average was beached near the $199 level. Therefore, a break and close above the $199-200 zone is a positive zone.
