Ethereum Price Analysis
Recently, we saw a couple of swing moves in ETH price above the $102 and $104 levels against the US Dollar. Later, the ETH/USD pair formed a decent support above $104 and started an upward move. The pair gained momentum above the $104 and $107 resistance levels. Moreover, there was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $117 high to $101 swing low. The price traded with a positive bias above the $105 pivot zone.
Moreover, there was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance at $107 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD. The pair tested the $109-110 resistance area where sellers emerged. Moreover, the price also failed near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $117 high to $101 swing low. At the moment, the price action is positive above $107, but ETH is facing a lot of hurdles near the $109 and $112 resistance levels. More importantly, the 100 hourly simple moving average is also near the $112 level to act as a solid hurdle. Finally, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $117 high to $101 swing low is at $112. Therefore, the price must break the $112-114 resistance area for an upside acceleration.
The above chart indicates that ETH price made a nice upward move above the $107 resistance. However, a proper close above $114 is needed for more gains in the near term.
