Ethereum Price Analysis
After a failed attempt to settle above $215, Ethereum price started a fresh corrective wave against the US Dollar. ETH price traded below the $210 and $208 support levels.
Besides, there was a close below the $210 level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). There was also a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $176 swing low to $217 high.
The decline was such that the price even spiked below the $200 support. However, the $195-$196 acted as a strong buy zone. The 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $176 swing low to $217 high is also acting as a decent support.
It seems like there is a major contracting triangle forming with resistance near $207 on the 4-hours chart. On the upside, the triangle resistance is close to the $208 pivot level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours).
If there is a successful close above the triangle resistance, the 55 simple moving average (4-hours), and $210, the price is likely to accelerate higher in the near term. In the mentioned case, there are high chances of more gains above the $218 and $220 resistance levels.
Conversely, there is a risk of a downside break below the $200 and $198 support levels. The main support is near the $195 level. If there is a proper close below the $195 level, there is a risk of bearish continuation towards the $180 support level.
Looking at the chart, Ethereum price is trading above a few key supports near the $200 zone. Therefore, the price might clear the $210 barrier and continue higher unless it breaks the $195 support.
