Ethereum Price Support
Ethereum price ETH after trading above the $16.00 level failed to hold gains against the US Dollar and started to move down. The price dropped and broke the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $10.37 low to $16.08 high, which ignited further downsides in ETH.
The price is currently trading around a bullish trend line formed on the hourly chart (data feed via Kraken) of ETH/USD, which is protecting a break. Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $10.37 low to $16.08 high is also below the trend line, which means there is a chance of it finding bids near the highlighted support area.
Furthermore, the 100 hourly simple moving average is coinciding with the stated fib level, suggesting that there is a lot of crucial levels on the downside. So, if ETH fails to hold the downside, settles below the 100 hourly simple moving average, then it may increase a lot of bearish pressure in the short term.
I would suggest to wait for some time, and see how the price trades near the trend line, and then plan for a trade.
Hourly MACD – The MACD is in the bearish area, calling for more losses in ETH in the short term.

Major Support Level – $12.50
Major Resistance Level – $14.00
