Ethereum Price Decline
There was no major recovery in ETH price above the $460 level against the US Dollar. The price came under renewed selling pressure and traded below the $430 and $425 support levels. It almost tested the $400 handle and traded as low as $408.80. At the moment, the price is correcting higher towards $430. It has moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $460.54 high to $408.80.
On the upside, there are many resistances such as $440 and $460. There are also two bearish trend lines forming with resistance at $428 and $442 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The first trend line is near the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $460.54 high to $408.80. However, the most important resistance is around the $440 level and the second trend line. The 100 hourly simple moving average is also near $450 to act as a resistance.
An intermediate resistance is around the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $460.54 high to $408.80 at $435. Therefore, any major upsides are likely to be capped by the $440 level. On the downside, the recent low of $408 is a decent support. The most important support is near $400-395 where there can be strong bids.
