Ethereum Price Analysis
In the past few days, there was a steady rise from the $197 swing low in Ethereum price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair broke many important resistances near $210 and $212 to move into a positive zone. Moreover, there was a close above the $220 level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). It opened the doors for more gains above the $230 level. Finally, the price traded towards the $236 level and recently started a short term downside correction.
It broke the $235 and $232 levels. However, the correction found support near the $227 level. Moreover, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $197 low to $237 swing high is acting as a support. More importantly, there is a crucial ascending channel forming with support near $224 on the 4-hours chart. If there is a downside break below the channel support, the price could test the $220 support.
However, the main support is near the $218 level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $197 low to $237 swing high is also near the $218 level. Therefore, the $218 and $220 levels might act as strong buy zones. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $236-237 area.
A successful close above the $237 resistance might push the price towards the $240 and $245 level. The next key resistance is near the $250 level, above which the price could test the $262 level.
Looking at the chart, Ethereum price is trading with a positive bias above the $224 and $220 support levels. Therefore, there are high chances of more upsides above $237 and $240 in the near term. Only a daily close below the $220 support might negate the current bullish view.
