Ethereum Price Trend Lines Resistance
There were further losses in ETH price below the $240 support against the US Dollar. The price failed to overcome selling pressure and traded close to the $200 level. A new weekly low was formed at $204 from where a recovery wave was initiated. There was a strong buying interest above $200, which opened the doors for a recovery in the near term. The price moved higher and traded above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $310 high to $204 low.
The current wave trend is positive, but there are many hurdles on the way up near $270 and $288. Yesterday’s highlighted two bearish trend lines with resistance at $275-288 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD are waiting to stop the upside. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $310 high to $204 low is at $257. The 100 hourly simple moving average is also waiting above the trend lines at $290 to act as a barrier.
So, if the price continues to move higher, it is likely to face resistances starting from $260 up to $288. On the downside, the $200 handle is a monster support zone.
