Ethereum Price Analysis

This past week, we saw a major decline in ETH price below the $180 support against the US Dollar. Moreover, there was a close below the $175 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Finally, the price traded to a new monthly low at $163. Later, the price started consolidating losses and it seems like a decent support base is forming near the $165 level.

Recently, Ethereum price started an upside correction above the $168 level. Moreover, there was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $188 high to $163 swing low. However, it seems like the price is struggling to surpass the 100 hourly simple moving average, currently at $172. If there is a break above the 100 hourly simple moving average, the price could recover towards $175.

The 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $188 high to $163 swing low is positioned near the $175 level to act as a resistance. However, the main resistance on the upside is near the $180 level (the previous support area). A successful close above $180 is needed for a decent recovery in the coming sessions.

On the downside, an initial support is near the $168 level. Additionally, there is a connecting bullish trend line forming with support near $168 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. If the pair breaks the $168 support, it could retest the key $165 support area. If there are more downsides below $165, the price could even break the $163 swing low and trade to a new low.

Looking at the chart, Ethereum price might gain bullish momentum if it breaks the $174 level and the 100 hourly SMA. However, it wont be easy for the bulls to clear the $178-180 resistance area.
