Ethereum Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a nice upside move above the $200 level in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded above the $202 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It even broke the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $207 swing high to $198 low. However, the price struggled to clear the $203 resistance zone, which acted as a solid barrier.

The price was also rejected near the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $207 swing high to $198 low. As a result, there was a fresh decline and the price moved below the $201 and $200 levels. There was a close below the $200 level and the 100 hourly SMA. It seems like the price may continue to move down towards the $197-198 zone. On the upside, there is a strong resistance formed near $201 and the 100 hourly SMA. There is also a new bearish trend line formed with resistance at $201 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. As long as the price is below the $201 level, it could drop towards the $197 support area in the near term.
