Ethereum Price Analysis

In the past few sessions, there was a steady decline in ETH price from the $216 resistance against the US Dollar. More importantly, bitcoin price gained bearish momentum and declined towards the $10,500 bearish target (as discussed in the weekly forecast). However, Ethers price remained above the $200 support area and no new weekly low was formed.

The last swing low was formed near $203 and the price is currently correcting higher.

However, the price is still trading well below the $210 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Additionally, there is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $208 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.

The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $216 high to $203 low is also acting as a resistance. Therefore, the price remains in a bearish zone below $210.
