Ethereum Starts Corrective Decrease
This past week, we saw a strong rise in Ethereum above the $165 and $170 resistance levels against the US Dollar. ETH price even surpassed the $175 resistance and traded close to the $180 zone.
However, the price faced a strong selling interest near the $178-$180 resistance zone. A high was formed near $179 and the price started a solid downside correction.
The price traded below a couple of important supports near the $172 and $170 levels. Moreover, there was a break below a major bullish trend line with support near $172 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.
Finally, Ethereum price settled below the $170 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It opened the doors for more losses and the price broke the $165 support. A low is formed near $162 and the price is currently correcting higher.
An initial resistance is near the $166 level. Besides, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $179 high to $162 low is also near $165.
The first key resistance is near the $168 level and the 100 hourly SMA. The main resistance is near the $170 level since it is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $179 high to $162 low.
Therefore, Ethereum needs to climb back above the $168 and $170 levels to resume its upward move towards $180 and $185.
Dips In ETH Remain Supported
On the downside, there are a couple of key supports near $162 and $158. If ETH fails to stay above the $158 support, there is a risk of a larger downside correction.
The main support is near the $152 level, below which Ethereum is likely to turn bearish and decline towards $140 in the near term.
Hourly MACD – The MACD for ETH/USD is slowly moving back into the bullish zone.
