During the correction wave, it moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $225.98 high to $190.20 low. It gained pace, but the upside move was protected by the $208-210 resistance.

The $208 resistance is also the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $225.98 high to $190.20 low. There was a rejection around the $208 level and the price started trading in a range. There is a short-term contracting triangle pattern with resistance at $203 forming on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.
