Ethereum Price Analysis
Yesterday, we saw a downside extension in Ethereum price below $210 against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair even broke the $205 level and tested the $200 support level. The bulls managed to defend the $200 handle and the price started a decent recovery. There was a break above the $210 and $215 resistance levels to start the current upward move. Moreover, the price even surpassed the $220 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Besides, yesterday’s highlighted key bearish trend line was breached with resistance near $212 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair is now trading nicely above the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $236 high to $200 low. The current price action indicates the chances of more gains above the $225 level in the near term.
An immediate resistance is near the $228-230 zone. Moreover, the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $236 high to $200 low is likely to act as a resistance near $228. If there are more gains above $228 and $230, the price could continue to rise. The next stop for the bulls could be near the $236 swing high.
On the other hand, if the price corrects lower, it might find bids near the $220 support. Additionally, the $218 level and the 100 hourly SMA are also strong supports. As long as the price is trading above the 100 hourly, it is likely to break the $228 and $230 resistance levels.
Looking at the chart, Ethereum price is showing a lot of positive signs above the $218 level. The technical structure is positive, suggesting more upsides above $230. Only a close below $216 and the 100 hourly SMA might negate the current bullish view in the near term.
