Ethereum Price Approaching Crucial Break

Ethereum Price

The 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $246 high to $239 low is also acting as a resistance. If ether price breaks the triangle resistance and $245, it could start a strong increase.

An initial barrier is near the $250 level, above which the bulls are likely to aim a steady rise above the $255 and $260 levels in the near term.

Bearish Break in ETH?

If Ethereum fails to break the triangle resistance, it could start a fresh decline below the $242 support. The main support is now near the $240 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

A successful daily close below the $240 support zone could open the doors for a larger decline. In the stated case, the price might accelerate lower towards the $230 and $225 levels in the coming sessions.
