Ethereum Price Struggling Near $180
This week, there was a slow and steady rise in Ethereum above $170 against the US Dollar. ETH price corrected a few points, but it was able to pop above the $175 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Finally, it revisited the key $178 resistance area, where the bears took a stand. A high is formed just below $180 and the price is currently correcting gains. It broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent gain from the $170 swing low to $179 high.
An initial support on the downside is near the $175 level. It coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent gain from the $170 swing low to $179 high.
Moreover, there is a major ascending channel forming with support near $173 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. If there is a downside break below the channel support, the price could test the $170 support area.
Ethereum Price
On the upside, the $178 and $180 levels are important hurdles for Ethereum bulls. The price must settle above $180 to continue higher. The next major resistance above $180 is seen near the $200 handle.
Key ETH Support
The first major support is near the ascending channel, followed by $170. If ETH bulls fail to defend the $170 support level, the next support is seen near the $168 level.
It also coincides with the 1.236 Fib extension level of the recent gain from the $170 swing low to $179 high. Besides, the 100 hourly simple moving average is also near the $168 level.
If there is a break below the $168 support, Ethereum might turn bearish and test the $158 support. An intermediate support could be near the $162 level.
