Price analysis of Ethereum
Recently, the ETH price began a downward correction after reaching the weekly high at $ 218.63 compared to the US dollar. The ETH / USD pair declined and traded below support levels $ 215.00 and $ 210.00. There was even a peak below the fiber retracement level of 61.8% in the last wave, from the low of $ 200 to a maximum of $ 218. However, the price remained above the support of $ 205.00 and a simple 100-hour moving average.
At the moment, the price is trading above the $ 208 level and it seems that it is preparing for further gains. More importantly, there is a major breakout model formed with resistance to $ 209 on the ETH / USD time chart. It is likely that the pair will reset the resistance of the triangle and then $ 210 for a new upward move. In the case cited, the price could be traded higher towards the $ 215.00 or $ 218.00 level. On the other hand, if there is a bearish break, the price could retest $ 205.00. Furthermore, the Fib retracement level 76.4% of the last wave from $ 200 low swing to $ 218 high is a decent support at $ 204.
