Ethereum Price Analysis
Yesterday, there was a major downside move below the $105 support in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair declined sharply below the $105 level and traded towards the $100 level. The price even settled below the $105 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. After testing the $100 support, the price started a short term upside correction. It traded above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $107 high to $100 low. However, the price faced a strong resistance near $105 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Additionally, the price failed to gain strength above the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $107 high to $100 low. More importantly, there is a major bearish trend line formed with resistance near $105 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair is currently consolidating below the trend line, $105 and the 100 hourly SMA. To recover further, the price must break $105 and the 100 hourly SMA. The next crucial resistance is near the $107 level, which acted as a hurdle on many occasions in the past. On the other hand, if the price fails to move above $105, it could resume its decline.
Looking at the chart, ETH price is clearly facing an uphill task near $105 and $107. Therefore, there is a risk of a fresh drop towards the $102 and $100 levels.
