Ethereum Price Gaining Traction

Yesterday, we discussed the chances of Ethereum price testing the $250 resistance. ETH price did gain bullish momentum above the $245 level and tested the $250 resistance zone.

A high is formed near $251 and the price is trading well above the 100 hourly simple moving average. It is currently struggling to gain strength above the $250 and $252 levels.

Ether price tested the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $235 low to $251 high. The first major support on the downside is seen near the $242 level. There is also a key bullish trend line forming with support near $242 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.

The trend line is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $235 low to $251 high. If there is a downside break below the trend line support, there is a risk of more downsides below the $240 level.

On the upside, Ethereum must gain momentum above the $250 resistance zone. An immediate resistance is near the $255 level. The next major resistance is near the $265 level.

Any further gains could start a strong upward move and the price might surpass the $275 resistance to test $282 or even $295 in the coming days.

Downsides Could Be Limited in ETH

If Ethereum starts a downside correction, it is likely to find bids near the $242 and $240 levels. The next major support is seen near the $235 level.

Any further losses may perhaps lead the price towards the $232 support zone or the 100 hourly SMA, where the bulls are likely to take a stand.
