In addition, sellers pushed the price below an uplinked uptrend line with support for $ 218 on the hourly chart of Eth / USD. However, the pair is approaching another important uptrend line, with support for $ 216 on the same chart. If there is a downside break below $ 216, the price could test the $ 212-213 support area. Intermediate support is close to $ 214. It represents the 50% fiber retracement level of the last wave from the minimum of $ 205 to the maximum of $ 223. Therefore, if the price falls, it could find a strong support near at the support level $ 212 or $ 213. On the upside, an initial resistance is close to the $ 219-220 zone, beyond which the price could exceed $ 213.
Looking at the chart, the ETH price is currently correcting lower, but is approaching the key supports above $ 212. Once the current wave is complete, the price will most likely exceed $ 221.
