Yesterday, we experienced a nice upside break above the $89-90 resistance area in Ethereum price against the USD. The ETHUSD pair traded towards the $96-97 level and settled above the 100 hourly SMA. Later, the price strikes the lower level and tested the $91-92 support area where buyers emerged.

On the downside, an initial support is the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the recent wave from the $91 lows to $104 highs.
Also, there is a connecting bullish trend line formed with support at $97 on the hourly chart of ETHUSD pair. The trend line is close to the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the recent wave from the $91 swing low to $104 swing high. Therefore, if there is a downside correction, the price of the coin is likely to find support near the $97 and $100 levels.
