  • The price is still struggling to clear the $172 and $173 resistance levels, despite gains in bitcoin.
  • There was a break above a key bearish trend line with resistance at $168 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair could trade in a range before it makes an attempt to break the $172 and $175 resistance levels.

Ethereum Price Analysis

In the past three sessions, there were mostly range moves in Ethereum price above $164 against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair slowly moved higher and broke the $168 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average. There was also a break above the $170 level, but the price struggled near $173 plus the 50% Fib retracement level of the downside move from the $180 high to $164 low. The price retreated from the $173 swing high and revisited the $165 support area.

Recently, it bounced back above $168 and the 100 hourly SMA. Moreover, there was a break above a key bearish trend line with resistance at $168 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair traded above the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent slide from the $173 high to $165 low. However, the bulls seem to be struggling to gain bullish momentum above $172 and $173. ETH price is currently trading in a range and it could even dip a few points towards the $167 or $165 support.

To start a solid upward move, the price must clear the $172 and $173 levels. However, the main resistance is near $175, above which the price could trade towards the $180 resistance level. On the downside, an initial support is at $167, below which the price might retest the $165 support level.
