The ETH / USD pair continued to struggle to gain momentum and recently fell below $ 275. It was also a break below the fiber retracement level of 38.2% of the last wave, from $ 259 down to $ 283 up. However, the downturns were limited as the $ 270 level worked as support.
In addition, it seems that the 50% fiber retracement level of the last wave from the low of $ 259 to $ 283 high is acting as a support. If there is a break below $ 270 and $ 268 levels, the price may fall towards the $ 262 level.

The same trend line has acted as an obstacle for buyers on many occasions above $ 275. It also coincides with the SMA at 100 hours near the $ 277 level.
