Ethereum Price Trend
There were heavy declines below $348-350 in Ethereum price this past week against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded as low as $304.26 and is currently consolidating losses with a few positive moves. It traded above the $315 level and spiked above $325. There was also a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $363.03 high to $304.26 low.
However, the upside move was capped by the $328-330 levels. Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $363.03 high to $304.26 low acted as a resistance. At the outset, there is a major bearish trend line in place with resistance at $320 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Above the trend line resistance, the 100 hourly simple moving average is positioned near $340. Therefore, it seems like there is a cluster of resistances formed between $320-340. A break above this could push the price above the $348-350 resistance zone in the near term.
Looking at the chart, ETH price is showing no major signs of a recovery above $320. Therefore, it could dip a few points below the $315 level before it attempts to break the $320 and $330 resistance levels once again.
