Ethereum Price Upside Move
There was a failure to break the $870 resistance in ETH price against the US Dollar. The price started a downside correction and traded below $850. It also declined below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $775 low to $870 high. More importantly, there was a break below the $840 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
However, the downside move was protected by the 800-810 support area. Moreover, the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $775 low to $870 high acted as a support and prevented declines. A fresh upside wave was initiated recently and the price moved above $820. It seems like the ETH/USD pair is currently attempting an upside break above a bearish trend line at $840 on the hourly chart. The pair may close above the $840 resistance and it could attempt a run towards $870. However, a break above the $870 resistance won’t be easy in the near term.
On the downside, the $820 support is a decent buy zone. If the price fails to stay above the $820 support, it could retest the $800 handle. On the upside, a break above the $870 swing high may call for more upsides towards the $900 level.
