Ethereum Price Support
There was no upside reaction in ETH price above the $470-472 resistance area against the US Dollar. At the same time, the downside move was limited by the $448-450 support. More importantly, yesterday’s highlighted key contracting triangle with current resistance near $485 is intact on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The triangle support around $455 is positioned around the 100 hourly simple moving average.
The pair recently tested the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $390.74 low to $479.94 high. It gained bids and moved back above $450 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The overall price action is positive above $455, but buyers are losing grip. They need to gain momentum and push the price above the $470 level. However, the most important resistance is around the $485 level and the triangle upper trend line. There can be a couple of swing moves, but the price has to stay above $455.
Should there be a break below $455 or the 100 hourly SMA, the price might test the 50% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $390.74 low to $479.94 high at $445. On the upside, an initial resistance is around $468, followed by $470 and $485.
