Ethereum Retreats From $250 But 100 Hourly SMA Could Trigger Fresh Surge | NewsBTC

Ethereum gained traction above the $245 resistance, but it struggled to clear the $250 resistance against the US Dollar. ETH price is likely to find support near $245 and it could rally again.

  • Ethereum traded to a new intraday high after a spike above the $245 resistance.
  • The price is currently retreating from the $250 resistance, but trading well above the 100 hourly simple moving average.
  • There was a break above a key contracting triangle with resistance near $243 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair is likely to remain well bid above the $245 and $244 support levels.

Ethereum Price Showing Positive Signs

After trading in a range for many sessions, Ethereum price spiked above the $244 and $1245 resistance levels. ETH formed a strong support base above $240 and the 100 hourly simple moving average before starting the recent rise.

During the rise, there was a break above a key contracting triangle with resistance near $243 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair tested the $250 resistance zone, where the bulls lost momentum and sellers prevented more gains.

Ethereum Price

Ether price is currently correcting lower and trading below the $248 level. There was a spike below the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent rise from the $242 low to $250 high.

The previous key resistance near the $245 level is currently acting as a strong support. The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent rise from the $242 low to $250 high is also acting as a strong support.

On the upside, the $250 level seems to the next major hurdle for the bulls. A successful daily close above the $250 level is needed for more gains. The next key resistance could be near the $265 level.

False Break in ETH?

The $245 level is an initial support for Ethereum. The main support is now forming near the $244 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

If the price fails to stay above the 100 hourly simple moving average, there are high chances of a sharp decline below the $240 support. In the stated case, the price might dive towards $230 or even $225.
