Ethereum Price Support Zone
Yesterday, there was a minor upside move ETH price against the US Dollar towards the $45 level. The price was also able to clear the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $49.74 high to $30.36 low. However, it failed to break the 76.4% Fib level of the same wave just around $45. As a result, there was a downside move towards the $40.00 handle. The price traded as low as $39.65 where it found support.
During the downside move, there was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $30.36 low to $45.03 high. Later, it found support near the 38.2% Fib level at $39.42, and recovered. At the moment, the price is trading positively above $40.50. There is a contracting triangle pattern formed with support near $40.80 on the hourly chart (ETH/USD, data feed via SimpleFX). It is acting as a supportive pattern, and may produce a bounce from $40.50.
On the upside, the price needs to clear the triangle resistance at $44.80 in order for a push higher. More importantly, the price also needs to break the $45.06 level for a sustained move higher.
