Ethereum Price Upside Hurdle
There were further declines in ETH price below the $700 level against the US Dollar. The price declined below the $675 level and tested the $670 support zone. A low was formed at $663 from where an upside wave was initiated. During the upside move, the price was able to break the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $761 high to $663 low.
Moreover, there was a break above a key bearish trend line with resistance at $702 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair gained upside momentum and was able to move above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $761 high to $663 low. At the moment, the pair is attempting a close above the 100 hourly simple moving average and the $718 resistance. Once the pair settles above the 100 hourly SMA, there can be a break above $725.
