Ethereum Price Decline

We followed a crucial contracting triangle pattern with support at $330-335 for ETH price against the US Dollar. The price was struggling to hold the $330 support yesterday. It looks like sellers won a huge battle and took the price below $330. There was a clear break and close below the contracting triangle at $330, which ignited a sharp downside move. The price moved below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $256 low to $375 high.

It traded as low as $288 where buyers appeared. The price is currently correcting higher and moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $365 high to $288 low. However, the broken trend line support at $330 on the upside may act as a major hurdle. It also coincides with the 100 hourly simple moving average at $335. An initial resistance is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $365 high to $288 low.
