Ethereum Price Analysis

Recently, there was a minor upside move above $88 and $90 in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair tested the $90 resistance area and faced a solid selling interest. As a result, there was a bearish reaction and the price declined below the $87 and $85 support levels. There was also a close below the $87 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

A new intraday low was formed at $82.99 and it seems like the price may decline further. It is currently correcting higher above $85. An initial resistance is the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $90 high to $83 low. Moreover, there is a new connecting bearish trend line formed with resistance at $89 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. An intermediate resistance is the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $90 high to $83 low. It seems like there is a cluster of resistances formed between $88 and $90. Therefore, as long as the price is below $90, it may continue to decline.
