Ethereum Price Analysis
After trading above the $250 level, ETH price started a short-term consolidation against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair formed a high near $254 and corrected below the $240 level recently. There was a break below the $235 level as well, but the price found support near $232. Later, the price started a recovery and moved above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $254 high to $232 low.
The upside move found resistance near the $247 and $250 levels. Buyers defended more gains and the price remained below $250. Moreover, buyers failed to push the price above the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $254 high to $232 low. At the moment, there is a new contracting triangle forming with support near $240 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The triangle is about to provide the next move either above $247 or below $240. Below $240, the price may perhaps retest the $232 low. On the other hand, a push above the $247 and $250 resistance could spark more gains.
