Ethereum Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a massive break below $100 in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair remained in a bearish zone and settled below the $100 level. The last swing low was formed at $94 before the price corrected higher. It moved above $100 and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $112 high to $94 low. However, the upside move was capped near the $103 level.

The price failed near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $112 high to $94 low. As a result, there was a fresh decline and the price traded below the $94 low. Sellers gained pace and pushed the price below the $90 and $85 levels. More importantly, the price is now well below the $100 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. To the upside, there are two key bearish trend lines formed with resistance at $96 and $102 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Therefore, an upside correction is likely to face a lot of selling interest near the $90, $95 and $96 levels.
