Ethereum Price Holding Key Supports

Ethereum price traded in a crucial range above the main $240 support zone. ETH revisited the range support at $240 recently and it is currently moving higher.

It seems to be trading nicely above the $242 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. There was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $248 swing high to $240 low.

However, the $245 level is currently acting as a resistance. There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $245 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The trend line is close to the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $248 swing high to $240 low.

Ethereum Price

If there is an upside break above the trend line, ether price could make another attempt to clear the $248 and $250 resistance levels. A successful close above the $250 resistance is needed for a sustained upward move.

In the mentioned bullish case, there are chances of a sharp 8% to 15% rise towards the $265 and $280 levels in the near term.

Bearish Break in ETH

On the downside, there is a key breakdown support forming near the $240 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. If Ethereum settles below the $240 level, there is a risk of a sharp decline.

An initial support after the breakdown could be near the $230 level, below which the bears are likely to aim a test of the $220 level. Any further losses could lead the price towards the $205 level.
