Ethereum Price Analysis

Recently, ETH price started a decent upside recovery from the $196 swing low against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded above the $200 and $205 resistance levels. There was also a close above the $202 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. However, the price faced a solid resistance near the $206 and $207 resistance levels. A high was formed at $206.38 and later the price moved down.

It declined below the $205 level and the 50% Fib retracement level of the last upside from the $198 low to $206 high. However, the downside move was protected by the $200-201 support zone. There is also a key bullish trend line in place with support at $201 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Besides, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last upside from the $198 low to $206 high is at $201.50. Therefore, the $200-201 support area holds a lot of importance in the near term. As long as the price is above $200, it could bounce back.
