Ethereum Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a nice upside break above the $89-90 resistance area in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded towards the $96-97 zone and settled above the 100 hourly simple moving average. Later, it corrected lower and tested the $91-92 support area where buyers emerged. Finally, there was a fresh bullish wave and the price broke the $97 and $99 resistance levels.

The price even broke the $100 level and traded as high as $104.47. Currently, the price is consolidating gains near $102, with a bullish angle. On the downside, an initial support is the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $91 low to $104 high. Moreover, there is a connecting bullish trend line formed with support at $97 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The trend line is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $91 low to $104 high. Therefore, if there is a downside correction, the price is likely to find support near the $97 and $100 levels. On the upside, a break above the $104 swing high could push the price towards $108 or $115.
