Ethereum Price Resistances
There was no major action in ETH price during the past 2-3 sessions, as it remained below $282 against the US Dollar. It looks like the price is trading in a range with two important resistance levels- $265 and $282. The price is currently above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $282 high to $249 low. The first crucial resistance is around a connecting bearish trend line with resistance at $265 forming on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.
The 100 hourly simple moving average is also around the trend line resistance at $265. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $282 high to $249 low is also near $266. This is why $265-266 is the first major hurdle for buyers. The second one is around the $282 level. It acted as a barrier many times, and the price may continue to face resistance near $282. Only a successful close above $282 would ignite further gains and take ETH above the $300 handle.
An intermediate resistance is near the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $282 high to $249 low. On the downside, the $248 and $250 levels might continue to provide support.
Hourly MACD – The MACD is mostly neutral and flat.
