Ethereum Price Resistance

Yesterday, we saw a nice upside move in ETH price above the $300 level against the US Dollar. The price traded as high as $311.45 before facing sellers and starting a downside move. The price came under pressure during the past sessions and moved below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $285.20 low to $311.45 high. It opened the doors for more losses and the price is now trading below the $296 level. It broke a horizontal support at $295-296 to clear the path for more declines.

Moreover, yesterday’s highlighted connecting bullish trend line with support at $296 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD was cleared. During the downside move, sellers managed to push the price back below $290 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. These all are bearish signs since the price is now below $290. It traded as low as $284.03 and might correct in the short term.

An initial resistance is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $311.45 high to $284.03 low. However, the most important resistance is near the 100 hourly SMA and $296. It also represents the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $311.45 high to $284.03 low.
