Ethereum price is struggling to gain strength above $185 versus the US Dollar since bitcoin is declining. ETH price could spike below the $180 support in the near term.
Ethereum Price Analysis
In the past two days, ETH price made two attempts to surpass the $185 resistance against the US Dollar. However, bitcoin price struggled to climb higher above the $10,350 and $10,400 resistance levels. As a result, Ether price also started showing a few bearish signs below the $185 resistance. On the positive side, the price is holding the main $178 and $180 support levels.
The last swing low was formed near the $177 level. The price is currently correcting higher above the $178 and $179 levels. Moreover, there was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $185 swing high to $177 swing low. On the upside, the $182 level is currently protecting gains. Additionally, there is a connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance near $182 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.
The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $185 swing high to $177 swing low is also acting as a resistance. If there is an upside break above $182, Ethereum price could revisit the $185 resistance level. To continue higher and start a decent rise, the price must break the $185 and $186 resistance levels.
On the upside, an initial support is near the $180 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The next key support is near the $178 level. If there is a downside break below the last swing low, the price could correct further lower towards the $170 support area in the near term.
