Ethereum Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a solid upward move above the $197 and $200 resistances in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded above the $208 and $210 resistance levels. It traded close to the $220 level and formed a high at $219.95. Later, the price retreated sharply and trimmed most of its gains above $210. There was a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $189 low to $219 high.

However, the downside move found support near the $199-20 zone. The price traded close to the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $189 low to $219 high. Later, it recovered and settled above the $200 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It seems like there is a key connecting bullish trend line in place with support at $202 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. On the upside, the price has to break the $204-205 resistance area to climb higher. The next major resistance is near $212, above which the price could test $215.
