Ethereum Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a nice upward move above the $218 resistance in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded above the $220 level and posted an intraday high near $223. Later, there was a downside correction and the price declined below the $220 and $218 level. Moreover, there was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $205 low to $223 high.

Besides, sellers pushed the price below a connecting bullish trend line with support at $218 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. However, the pair is now approaching another major bullish trend line in place with support at $216 on the same chart. If there is a downside break below $216, the price could test the $212-213 support area. An intermediate support is near $214. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $205 low to $223 high. Therefore, if the price extends decline, it may well find a strong support near the $212 or $213 support level. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $219-220 zone, above which the price could surpass the $213 high.
