Ethereum Price Analysis
After forming a support base above $150, Ethereum price started a strong rally against the US Dollar. ETH price broke the $160 and $165 resistance levels to move into a positive zone.
The price even surged above $180 and settled above the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). The price traded to a new monthly high at $191 and recently started a downside correction.

It tested the $170 support and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). The 50% Fib retracement level of the last key rise from the $148 swing low to $191 high is also acting as a strong support base. The next key support is visible near the $165 and $163 levels.
