Ethereum Price Resistance
Ethereum price broke down further as sellers remained in action. There was a break below the $11.60 support area for a move towards $11.50. Once again a new weekly low was formed at $11.46. The price was seen correcting higher yesterday, but it found sellers near $12.10. I was correct when I called for a test of the 1.618 extension of the last swing from the $11.84 low to $12.28 high. The price not only tested it, but also broke it for a new low.
The ETH/USD pair is once again attempting a recovery, and already moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $12.22 high to $11.46 low. So, there is a chance of more upsides in the near term. On the upside, there a new short-term bearish trend line formed on the hourly chart (data feed via SimpleFX) of ETH/USD. It may be seen as a resistance along with the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $12.22 high to $11.46 low.
However, there is a chance of a break above the trend line resistance, which may open the doors for a recovery.
