Ethereum Price Analysis
Yesterday, we saw a nice upward move above the $ 218 resistance in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded above the $ 220 level and posted an intraday high near $ 223. Later, there was a downside correction and the price declined below the $ 220 and $ 218 level. Moreover, there was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $ 205 low to $ 223 high.
Besides, sellers pushed the price below a connecting bullish trend line with support at $ 218 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. However, the pair is now approaching another major bullish trend line in place with support at $ 216 on the same chart. If there is a downside break below $ 216, the price could test the $ 212-213 support area. An intermediate support is near $ 214. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $ 205 low to $ 223 high. Therefore, if the price extends decline, it may well find a strong support near the $ 212 or $ 213 support level. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $ 219-220 zone, above which the price could surpass the $ 213 high.
Looking at the chart, ETH price is currently correcting lower, but it is approaching key supports above $ 212. Once the current wave is complete, the price will most likely bounce back above $ 221.
