Ethereum price is currently rebounding versus the US Dollar, similar to bitcoin. However, ETH price must break the $185 resistance to continue higher in the coming sessions.
Ethereum Price Analysis
Yesterday, we saw a corrective increase in Ethereum above the $170 level against the US Dollar. ETH price faced a strong resistance near the $172 and $175 level. As a result, there was a minor dip before the bulls were able to push the price above the $175 resistance area. Moreover, there was a proper close above the $175 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
During the rise, there was a break above a declining channel with resistance near $171 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair even surpassed the $180 level. However, it is now trading near a crucial resistance at $185. The stated $185 level was a major support earlier and it might now prevent further upsides. If there is a clear break above the $185 resistance, Ethereum could continue to rise towards the $200 level.
On the downside, an immediate support is near the $180 level. It represents the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent leg from the $165 low to $185 high. However, the main support is now near the $175 level (the recent resistance area). It also coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent leg from the $165 low to $185 high.
If there are any further losses, the price might find support near the $175 level and the 100 hourly SMA. A successful close below $175 is likely to decrease the chances of more upsides above the $185 resistance area in the near term. The next major support is near the $165 level.
