Ethereum Price Support
There was a solid increase in buying interest as ETH price moved above the $750 resistance level against the US Dollar. Yesterday, we discussed that the price could move above the $725 level. It not only broke the $725 level, but moved higher by more than $50. During the upside, it broke the $765 and $780 resistance levels, and traded as high as $789.17. At the moment, the price is correcting lower from $789.17, but remains well supported.
ETH price recently traded below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $714 low to $789 high. However, there are many supports on the downside around the $755 level. More importantly, there is an ascending channel forming with support at $760 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Below the channel support, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $714 low to $789 high may perhaps act as a support around $756. Below the stated $756 support, the price could test the next fib support level at $746.
Looking at the chart, any further declines below $746 could be limited. On the upside, the price is facing a tiny resistance around the $788-790 levels. However, the main hurdle for buyers is close to the $800 level.
