Ethereum Price Analysis
Yesterday, we saw a sharp increase in Ethereum price above $220 resistance against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair gained pace above the $225 resistance and rallied above the second target discussed this week. It broke the key $240 and $250 resistance levels to move further into a positive zone. The uptrend was such that the price gained more than 20% and even tested the $270 level. The price is currently well above the $260 level and placed nicely above the 100 hourly simple moving average.
A swing high is formed at $270 and the price is still showing a lot of positive signs. If there is a downside correction, an immediate support is at $262. It represents the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent surge from the $237 swing low to $270 high. If there is an extended downside correction, the price could test the $254 support level. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent surge from the $237 swing low to $270 high is also near the $254 support. Besides, there is a new key bullish trend line forming with support near $244 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.
Therefore, if the price corrects lower, it is likely to find a lot of buyers near the $262 or $254 support. On the upside, the $270 level is an immediate resistance. If there is an upside break above $270, the price could rally towards the $285 level. However, the main target for the bulls could be $300 in the coming sessions.
