Ethereum Price Trend
There were only ranging moves recently in ETH price above the $280 level against the US Dollar. The price on the weekend traded lower and tested the $280 support zone where it found bids. Later, a recovery was initiated, and the price moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $309.37 high to $280.45 low. It opened the doors for more gains and the price crawled above $290.
During the upside move, there was a break above a connecting bearish trend line at $292 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The price is now comfortably placed above the $292 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It is also above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $309.37 high to $280.45 low, which is a bullish sign. Sooner or later, the price would move above $300 and attempt more gains in the near term.
On the downside, the $292 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average are support zones. If the price corrects lower, it may find support above $290. On the upside, today’s pivot stands at $302. Above $302, the price could head towards the $309 level.
