Ethereum Price Support
There was a minor correction wave initiated from the $482.89 swing high in ETH price against the US Dollar. The price moved below the $475 support and traded below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $358.17 low to $482.89 high. However, the downside move was limited as the $450-488 support area came into the picture and prevented declines.
Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $358.17 low to $482.89 high also acted as a support. Later, the price formed a base around the $448-450 levels and started upside move. There was a break above a contracting triangle with resistance at $457 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair is now back above the $460 level and is positioned well above the $450 support. It seems like the pair might continue to trade higher towards the last swing high of $482.
If buyers remain in action, there is even a chance that the pair would clear $480-482 for more gains. The next target in this case would be $500. On the downside, there are many support levels such as $464 and $460. The most important support is around the $450-448 zone.
