Ethereum Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a downside correction in bitcoin and Ethereum price against the US Dollar. Later, BTC/USD climbed back above $11,800, but ETH/USD faced a lot of hurdles. The pair formed a decent support base above the $222 level. There was a decent upside correction above the $225 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Moreover, the price traded above $228, but it failed to gain strength above the $230 resistance.

As a result, there was a fresh decline below $225 and the price retested the $222 support. A swing low was formed near the $220 level and the price is currently consolidating. It is above the $225 level plus the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $231 high to $220 swing low. However, the bulls are facing a strong resistance near the $227 and $230 levels.

Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $231 high to $220 swing low is near the $227 level. Additionally, there is a connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance near $228 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Therefore, an upside break above the $227, $228 and $230 resistance levels is needed for a strong rise in the near term.

On the downside, there are many supports above the $220 and $222 levels. There is also a key bullish trend line forming with support near $222 on the same chart. Therefore, a downside break below the $222 and $220 support levels might start another bearish wave.

Looking at the chart, Ethereum price is clearly trading above the key $220 and $222 support levels. As long as there is no downside break below the $220 support, the price could bounce back. Having said that, a successful break above the $230 resistance is needed for an upside acceleration towards $235 and $240.
