Ethereum Price Analysis
Recently, we saw an extended downside correction below the $160 level in Ethereum price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair tested the $155 level and settled below the 100 hourly simple moving average. However, the $155 level acted as a strong support and later the price started a fresh increase. Bulls gained traction above the $160 resistance and the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $170 high to $155 low.
More importantly, yesterday’s highlighted key bearish trend line was breached at $164 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair rallied above the $162 level and the 100 hourly SMA. Besides, there was a break below the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $170 high to $155 low. The price traded close to the $170 resistance area and formed a high near $168. It is currently consolidating gains above the broken trend line and the 100 hourly SMA. An immediate support is $165 and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $155 low to $168 high.
On the upside, a break above the $168 and $170 resistance levels may open the doors for more gains. The next stop for buyers could be $175, where sellers could appear. Having said that, if there is an upside break above $175, the price could continue to accelerate towards the $180 resistance.
