Ethereum Price Analysis
Recently, we saw a sharp decline in ETH price below the $220 and $215 supports against the US Dollar. The price even broke the $210 support level and settled below the 100 hourly simple moving average. Finally, the price tested the $200-$201 support area. A swing low was formed near $201 and the price started an upside correction above the $205 level. Moreover, there was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $226 swing high to $201 swing low.
The recovery was such that the price climbed above the $215 level and the 100 hourly SMA. However, the price failed to gain strength above the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $226 swing high to $201 swing low. Additionally, it seems like the price failed to surpass the previous support zone (now resistance) near the $215-216 region.
At the moment, the price is trading well below the $215 level and the 100 hourly SMA. An immediate support is near the $212 level. Furthermore, there is a key ascending channel forming with support near $212 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Therefore, if there is a downside break below the $212 support, Ethereum price could resume its decline below the $210 support. The next key support is near the $202 and $201 levels.
