Ethereum Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a nice 10% rally in Ethereum above the $175 resistance against the US Dollar. ETH price even broke the $180 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average. However, the main $185 resistance acted as a hurdle and prevented more gains. A high was formed near $185 and the price started a downside correction. It broke the $180 level to start the correction.

Moreover, there was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $168 swing low to $185 high. However, the price stayed above the $178 support and the 100 hourly SMA. Additionally, there is a connecting bullish trend line forming with support near $178 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The next support is near the $176 level. It coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $168 swing low to $185 high.

However, the main support is near the $175 level, where the bulls are likely to prevent additionally declines. If there is a downside break below $175 and the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $168 swing low to $185 high, the price could move back into a bearish zone. The next support is near the $172 level.

On the upside, an immediate resistance is near the $182 level. Having said that, the key resistance is near the $185 level. A successful break above the $185 resistance area is must for upside continuation in the near term.
