Ethereum Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a fresh increase above the $180 resistance in Ethereum price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded above the $185 level and tested the $188 level. The pair struggled to retain the bullish momentum and later corrected below the $185 level. There was a break below the $180 level and the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $165 low to $188 high. There was even a spike below the $175 level, but the $174 level acted as a strong support.

Besides, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $165 low to $188 high acted as a support. The price bounced back and traded above the $176 and $178 levels. It even spiked above the $180 level, but the $183 level prevented gains. It seems like there is a connecting bearish trend line in place with resistance near $182 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD, which is acting as a hurdle. A clear break above the trend line and $184 might open the doors for more gains.

The next key resistance is near the $188 level, above which the price is likely to test the $190 level. On the downside, there is a strong support formed near $174 and $175. There is also a major bullish trend line in place with support at $174 on the same chart. The trend line support near $174 also coincides with the 100 hourly simple moving average.
