Ethereum Price Resistances
ETH price declined this week, and recently broke the $10.00 support area for a move towards the $9.50 level. The ETH/USD pair is currently recovering, but there are many resistance levels on the way up. It has already broken the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $9.24 low to $11.35 high. So, there are chances of it extending the downside move, and test the full swing low of $9.24.
An initial resistance is currently around a bearish trend line formed on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD (data feed via SimpleFX). However, the most important resistance is near the 100 simple moving average (4-hours), which is at $10.55. It is crucial since there is another bearish trend line positioned around the same level. So, it may act as a monster hurdle for the ETH buyers on the way up.
It won’t be easy for the ETH buyers to take the price higher especially above the $10.55. If they succeed, then it may be considered as a trend change. On the downside, an initial support it at the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $9.24 low to $11.35 high at $9.70.
