Ethereum Price Analysis
Recently, Ethereum price corrected lower and tested the $262 support area against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair formed a swing low just above $261 and started a fresh increase. It traded above the $265 resistance to move into a positive zone. Moreover, there was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $275 high to $261 low.
The price is currently trading above the $268 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. However, it seems to be facing a strong resistance near the $270 level. The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $275 high to $261 low is also near the $270 level. If there is an upside break above the $270 resistance, the price could accelerate higher in the near term.
The next main resistance is near the $275 level. The bulls might struggle to clear the $275-276 zone, but if they succeed, there could be sharp gains. The next stop for them could be $280 and $285.
On the downside, an immediate support is near the $268 level. Moreover, there is a connecting bullish trend line forming with support near $268 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. If the pair fails to stay above the trend line support, it could decline back towards the $265 support. The next key support is near the $262 area, below which there is a risk of a sharp decline below $260.
Looking at the chart, Ethereum price is clearly moving higher with a positive bias above $265 and $268. However, the price must clear the $270 resistance to revisit the $275 level. In the short term, there could be more range moves below $275 before the price makes the next move either above $275 or below $260.
