Ethereum Price Weekly Analysis

This past week, Ethereum price dipped further to test the $155 support area against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded close to the $155 support, which acted as a strong buy zone. The pair started a solid rebound above the $160 and $165 resistance levels. There was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $188 high to $155 low. Moreover, there was a close above the $162 pivot level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).

Finally, there was a break above the $169 and $170 resistance levels. It opened the doors for more gains and the price tested the $176-178 resistance area. The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $188 high to $155 low is also acting as a resistance. There is also a major bearish trend line formed with resistance at $176 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD. Therefore, the pair must break the $176 resistance area to climb further higher in the near term.

A successful close above the $176 and $180 resistance level may set the pace for more gains. The next resistance is at $188, above which the price could rally towards the $200 level. On the downside, the main support is near the $170 level. Below $170, the price is likely to decline further towards the $162 support and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).
