Ethereum Price Resistance
Yesterday, we saw two decent supports near $218 and $205 for ETH price against the US Dollar. There was an increase in selling pressure, igniting a downside move below $205. To start with there was a break below the $218 support area. Later, there was break below a descending contracting triangle with support at $212 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. As a result, the price moved down and cleared the $205 support area.
The downside move was strong since there was a break below the $200 handle as well. A new weekly low was formed at $190.39. There was a tiny correction from the $190.36 low as there was a move above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $225.36 high to $190.36 low. However, the upside move is capped by the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $225.36 high to $190.36 low. The price is resuming its downtrend and may soon retest $190.00.
As long as the price is below the $218 level, there can be more declines. A break below $190 could ignite further declines in the near term towards $180 or $170.
