Ethereum Price Analysis

Recently, ETH price dipped sharply from the $197 resistance against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair declined and retested the last swing low near the $1952 level. Buyers appeared, protected further losses, and finally pushed the price back above the $195 level. The price bounced back sharply and traded above the $197 level as well. Besides, there was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent downside from the $203 high to $191 low.

However, the price failed near a crucial resistance at $198. More importantly, yesterday’s highlighted major bearish trend line is intact with current resistance at $197 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Furthermore, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent downside from the $203 high to $191 low acted as a strong resistance. The price is currently trading just below the $197 level, trend line, and the 100 hourly simple moving average. A proper break above the trend line, $197, and $198 is needed for further gains in the near term. If not, the price could decline back towards the $195 or $194 level.
