Ethereum Price Resistance
There was a complete failure in ETH price to surpass the $290 level against the US Dollar. The price consolidated in a range below $290, but finally sellers had the upper hand. ETH declined and broke a couple of important support levels to trade below the $270 level. First, there was a break of the $285 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Second, yesterday’s highlighted declining channel pattern with support near $270 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD was cleared.
It opened the doors for more losses and the price moved below the $280 support and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave up from the $198.75 low to $298.70 high. The price also succeeded in breaking a crucial bullish trend line with support at $270 on the same chart. There was even a spike towards the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave up from the $198.75 low to $298.70 high.
The broken support on the upside near $280 and the 100 hourly simple moving average might act as resistances going forward. On the downside, the next major support is near $240 and the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave up from the $198.75 low to $298.70 high.
