Ethereum Technical Analysis
Looking at the charts, after forming a high near the $98-100 zone, Ethereum price started a bearish wave against the USD. The ETHUSD pair declined and traded below the $95 support and the 100 hourly SMA. It opened the doors for more losses and the price of the coin recently broke the $92 and $90 support levels. Also, sellers remained in control and even pushed the price below the $88 pivot level.
Moreover, yesterday’s highlighted major contracting triangle was breached with support at $88 level on the hourly chart of ETHUSD pair. The pair traded as low as $85 level recently and it is currently consolidating losses. An initial resistance is near the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the recent decline from the $99 swing highs to $85 lows. However, the first major hurdle is near the $91 level and the 100 hourly SMA. In addition to that, an intermediate resistance is the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the recent decline from the $99 swing highs to $85 lows.
In conclusion, Ethereum price is clearly facing a lot of hurdles starting with $91 level and up to $93 level. A credible close above the $93 level is needed for a decent recovery. If not, the price of the coin might break the $83 support and it may even test $80 handle.
