Ethereum Price Resistance

Yesterday, there was an attempt to break the $295 resistance, but ETH price failed to gain pace against the US Dollar. The price traded as high as $295.83 and later started a downside move. During the downside, there was a break below yesterday’s highlighted bullish trend line with support at $291 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair also broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $274.62 low to $295.83 high.

The pair traded close to the $285 level where buyers emerged. The 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $274.62 low to $295.83 high acted as a major barrier for sellers. The price recovered, but now there is a new connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance near $290.50. If the price corrects higher, it might find offers near $290. On the downside, the 100 hourly simple moving average is near $284.

Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $274.62 low to $295.83 high is at $282.72. Therefore, dips towards the $284-282 levels might find support. On the other hand, any upside move towards $290 could face resistance. The price needs to overcome the current range pattern to make the next move either below $282 or above $294-295.
