Key Highlights

  • ETH price recovered a few points, but it faced a strong resistance near $202 against the US Dollar.
  • There is an important bearish trend line in place with resistance at $200 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair must break the $200 and $202 resistance levels to move into a positive zone.

Ethereum price is facing tough challenges versus the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD may perhaps decline once again if it fails to move above $200-202.

Ethereum Price Analysis

This past week, there was a decent recovery initiated from the $191 support area in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded higher and broke the $194 and $197 resistance levels. Besides, there was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $205 high to $191 low. However, the price faced a strong resistance area near the $201-202 zone.

The price was rejected near the $202 level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). More importantly, there is an important bearish trend line in place with resistance at $200 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD. Additionally, there was no close above the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $205 high to $191 low. The price is now trading well below the $202 level and the 100 SMA. An immediate support is at $197, below which the price is likely to accelerate towards $194. On the other hand, buyers need to clear the $202 level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours) to gain upside momentum.
