Ethereum Price Analysis
This past week, Ethereum price extended its decline below the $190 support against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair even broke the $180 support and settled well below the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). Finally, the price traded to a new monthly low near $170 and recently started an upside correction. The price was able to climb back above the $180 and $184 resistance levels.
Additionally, there was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last crucial drop from the $239 high to $170 low. More importantly, there was a break above a crucial bearish trend line with resistance near $194 on the 4-hours chart. The price climbed back above the $195 level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). The price is now trading near the $202 resistance level, which is protecting further upsides.
Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last crucial drop from the $239 high to $170 low is near the $205 level. Therefore, an upside break above the $202 and $205 levels is needed for bullish continuation. The next important resistance is near the $215 level plus the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last crucial drop from the $239 high to $170 low.
On the downside, an immediate support is near the $195 level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). If the price fails to stay above the 55 SMA, it could correct lower towards the $190 support level. Any further losses below $190 could put a lot of pressure on the bulls.
Looking at the chart, Ethereum price is clearly trading with a positive bias above the $195 and $190 levels. Having said that, a proper break above the $205 resistance level is needed for additional gains in the coming sessions. In the mentioned case, the price might test $215 or even $220.
