Ethereum Price Analysis

Yesterday, we discussed that dips in ETH price remain supported above $97 against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair did correct lower in the short term, but buyers protected the $97-100 support zone. Later, there was a fresh upside move and the price traded above the $110 and $112 resistance levels. The price even broke the $114-116 resistance zone and traded close to the $120 level.

A high was formed near $119 and the price is currently correcting lower. An initial support is at $114 and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent leg from the $99 low to $119 high. However, the main support is near the $109-110 zone, which was a resistance earlier. Moreover, this week’s followed major bullish trend line is intact with support at $106 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The trend line is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent leg from the $99 low to $119 high. Therefore, if the price corrects lower, it could find support near the $108-109 zone.
