Ethereum Price Rise
There were a few swing moves in ETH price above $250 against the US Dollar. The price faced heavy offers and declined on the a few occasions from $305 and $310. However, one positive sign is the fact that the price remains in the bullish zone above $250 and the 100 simple moving average (H4). At the moment, there is a crucial ascending channel forming with support at $282 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD.
The channel support is also near the 100 simple moving average (H4) at $282.00. Therefore, the $282 level is very important. A break below the channel support at $282-280 and the 100 SMA might push the pair further lower. More importantly, the channel support is also near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $250.73 low to $311.45 high.
An intermediate support is near $288 and the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $250.73 low to $311.45 high. On the upside, the channel resistance is near $315.00. Before $315, the recent high at $311 might act as a resistance. Overall, buying dips towards the channel support or $288 might be considered as long as the price is above the 100 SMA (H4).
