Ethereum Price Analysis
Recently, Ethereum failed to surpass the $180 resistance area against the US Dollar. As a result, ETH price started a fresh decline below the $175 support area. Moreover, there was a close below the $175 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price even broke the $172 and $170 support levels. A new weekly low was formed near $167 and the price is currently consolidating losses.
An immediate resistance is near the $170 level. It coincides with the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $177 high to $167 low. The main hurdles for the bulls are near the $172 and $175 levels. Moreover, there is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $174 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. An intermediate resistance is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $177 high to $167 low.
Therefore, an upside correction from the current levels might face sellers near the $172 and $175 levels. A successful close above the $175 level and the 100 hourly SMA could open the doors for a recovery towards the $180 and $185 resistance levels.
If there is no recovery above $175, the price might continue to move down. An immediate support is near the $165 level. A downside break below the $165 support could set the pace for a drop towards the $160 support area in the near term.
