Ethereum Price Analysis

During the past three sessions, there were bearish moves in ETH price below the $210 resistance against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair failed to recover and broke the important $206 support to move into a bearish zone. Sellers took control and pushed the price below the $204 level. The price traded as low as $202 and it is currently well below the 100 hourly simple moving average.

At the moment, the price is consolidating losses above $202. An initial resistance is the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent slide from the $210 high to $202 low. However, the most important resistance is near the $206 level, which was a support earlier. More importantly, this week’s followed key bearish trend line is still in place with resistance at $208 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Below the trend line, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent slide from the $210 high to $202 low is positioned at $206.50. Therefore, if the price corrects higher, it is likely to face a solid selling interest near the $206-208 resistance zone.
