Ethereum Price Targets $200

Yesterday, we discussed the importance of the 100 hourly simple moving average and $170 for Ethereum against the US Dollar. ETH price remained well bid above the $170 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

As a result, there was a fresh increase above the $175 resistance area. Moreover, there was a break above a connecting bearish trend line with resistance at $174 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.

Finally, the bulls pumped the price above the $178 and $180 resistance levels. Overall, Ethereum gained more than 5%, while bitcoin price is still facing a strong resistance near the $9,500 level.

A new yearly high was formed near $187 and ETH is currently correcting gains. It is testing the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $170 swing low to $187 high.

On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $185 and $188 levels. A clear break above the $188 level could set the momentum for a test of the main $200 resistance area.

ETH Dips Supported

On the downside, there are many supports for Ethereum forming near the $178 and $180 levels. There is also a new bullish trend line forming with support near $182 on the same chart.

Furthermore, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $170 swing low to $187 high is also near the $178 level. Therefore, the price remains well supported on the downside near the $180 and $178 levels.

If the bulls fail to defend the $178 support level, there is a risk of a larger downside correction below $175. The main support for the current trend is now near the $170 level.
