Ethereum Price Analysis

After a minor downside correction, Ethereum started a fresh increase from the $175 support against the US Dollar. ETH price surged above the $180 and $185 resistance levels. Moreover, there was a close above the $185 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The upward move was such that the price even surpassed the $190 level and traded to a new monthly high near $196.

At the moment, the price is consolidating gains below the $195 level. It is trading near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $181 low to $196 high. Moreover, there is a short term breakout pattern forming with support near $191 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. If there is a downside break below the $191 and $190 levels, the price could extend its correction.

The next key support is near the $188 level. It coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $181 low to $196 high. If the price fails to stay above $188, it could test the $185 support area (the previous resistance area). Additionally, yesterday’s highlighted bullish trend line with current support near the $186 level is intact and it is likely to provide support.

On the upside, an immediate resistance is near the $195 level. A convincing break above the $195 level may perhaps push the price towards the next important resistance near $200, above which the price could even test $205.
