Ethereum Price Analysis

After testing the $275 support area, Ethereum price started an upside correction above $300 against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair broke the $310 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It even surpassed the $320 level, but it seems like the $322-323 zone acted as a major hurdle. A swing high was formed near $323 and recently the price started a fresh decline.

It traded below the key $315 and $310 support levels. During the decline, there was a break below a major ascending channel with support near $303 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Moreover, there was a break below the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $291 low to $323 high. The price is currently trading near the last swing low at $291 and is holding the $290 support level.

If there are more losses, the price could test the $284 support area. It represents the 1.236 Fib extension level of the upward move from the $291 low to $323 high. If there are more losses, the price may even revisit the key $275 support area in the near term.

On the upside, there are many hurdles near the $300 and $305 levels. The main resistance is near the $305 level and the 100 hourly SMA. A successful close above the 100 hourly SMA might start a decent recovery above $310. The next main hurdle for the bulls is near the $320 and $323 levels. If the price climbs above the last swing high at $323, it may perhaps rise towards the $350 level.
