Ethereum Price Analysis

After climbing above the $190 level, Ethereum failed to clear the $194 and $195 resistances against the US Dollar. A swing high was formed near $194 and the price declined below the $190 support.

Furthermore, there was a close below the $190 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It opened the doors for more losses below the $185 level. More importantly, there was a break below a key bullish trend line with support near $186 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.

Finally, the price spiked below the $180 support and traded as low as $179. At the moment, the price is correcting higher above the $180 level. It broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $194 high to $179 swing low.

However, the $185 level and the 100 hourly SMA are acting as resistances. On the upside, the next resistance is near the $186 level. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $194 high to $179 swing low.

If there is an upside break above $186, the price could test the $190 resistance area. Any further gains might push the price towards the $195 level. An intermediate resistance is near the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $194 high to $179 swing low.

On the downside, the $180 level is an initial support. If there are more downsides, the price could test the main $175 support area, where the bulls are likely to take a stand.

Ethereum Price

Looking at the chart, Ethereum price is showing a lot of positive signs above the $175 support, but it might dip further in the short term. Having said that, the price is likely to bounce back above $190 as long as there is no daily close below $175.
