During the rise, there was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance near $208 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair tested the $215 resistance and recently corrected lower. It broke the $212 level plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent upward move from the $204 low to $215 high. However, the bulls were able to protect the $208 support area.
Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent upward move from the $204 low to $215 high also acted as a support.

On the upside, the main resistance is near the $215 level, above which it could start a solid increase.
The next important resistance is near the $220 level, above which the price could revisit the $225 resistance. On the downside, if there is a break below the trend line, the $208 level might act as a support. If there are more losses, the price could retest the $202 support level.
Looking at the chart, Ethereum price could continue to recover if there is a proper close above the $215 resistance. Conversely, if the price fails to continue higher, there could be a downside reaction below $210 and $208 support levels in the near term.
