Ethereum Price Analysis
This past week, ETH price was rejected near the $125-126 resistance zone against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair started a significant downside move and traded below the $110, $105 and $100 support levels. There was even a close below $105 and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). Sellers pushed the price below the $100 and $90 levels. A new yearly low was formed near $80 and later the price corrected higher.
There was a decent correction above the $90 resistance. The price moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $125 high to $80 low. However, the upside correction was capped near the $103-104 area. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $125 high to $80 low prevented gains. There is also a crucial bearish trend line formed with resistance at $101 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD. The pair retreated and moved back below the $100 level. It is currently near $90 and it seems like upsides remain capped near $96 and $99.
The above chart indicates that ETH price is in a major downtrend below the $105 and $114 levels. If the price continues to move down, it could even break the $80 swing low. The next key support is at $72 and $65.
