Ethereum Price Analysis

This past week, ETH price found support near the $102 level and later recovered against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded above the $106 and $108 resistance levels. There was also a close above the $108 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. However, the price failed to break the $110 resistance level and later started a fresh decline. It moved below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $102 low to $110 high. Besides, there was a break below $106 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

The decline was strong as the price tested the $105 support level. More importantly, there was a break below a key bullish trend line with support at $106 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair tested the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $102 low to $110 high. At the moment, the price is correcting higher, but the previous support near $106 is acting as a resistance. Moreover, the 100 hourly SMA is acting as a strong barrier near the $106-107 zone. Therefore, a proper break above the $106, $107 and $108 levels is must for a decent upward move.
