Ethereum Price Analysis

After forming a support near the $109-110 zone, ETH price corrected higher against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded above the $115 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. However, the price struggled to break the $119-120 resistance zone. As a result, the price started a fresh decline and traded below the $115 and $112 levels. At the outset, the price is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $98 low to $125 high.

An initial support is near the $109-110 zone. It represents the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $98 low to $125 high. If sellers gain momentum below the $109 support area, there could be heavy losses. The next immediate support is near $105 and the 76.4% Fib retracement level. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $116 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Moreover, there is a major bearish trend line in place with resistance at $116 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.
