  • The pair could accelerate declines if there is a close below the $206 support.

Ethereum price is trading near key supports against the US Dollar and bitcoin. ETH/USD needs to climb above $209 and $210 to avoid a downside break.

Ethereum Price Analysis

Yesterday, we discussed an important support area near $206 in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair recently recovered above $208 and $209, but it faced a major hurdle near the $210 level. As a result, there was a fresh decline below $209 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price spiked below the $206 support once again and formed a low at $205. Later, it climbed back above $206 and it is currently consolidating near $207.

An initial resistance is near $208 and the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $211 swing high to $205 swing low. Above $208, the price could retest the $210 resistance. Moreover, yesterday’s highlighted major bearish trend line is intact with resistance at $209 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The trend line coincides with the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $211 swing high to $205 swing low. Therefore, a proper close above the trend line and $210 may start a decent recovery. If there is no upside break above $210, the price could decline sharply below $206 and $205.
