Ethereum Could Dive Below $225 Unless It Surges Past $235

56

Ethereum is currently correcting losses from the $228 low against the US Dollar. ETH must climb above the $235 resistance to start a fresh increase in the near term.

  • Ethereum is facing a couple of important hurdles near $235 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
  • The current price action suggests high chances of more losses below $230.
  • There is a short-term declining channel forming with support near $230 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair could decline heavily below $225 unless it surges past the $235 resistance zone.

Ethereum Price Might Resume Decline

After a strong decline below $235, Ethereum found support near the $228 level against the US Dollar. ETH price started an upside correction above the $230 level, but it is well below the 100 hourly simple moving average.

There was a break above the $232 level, plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $250 high to $228 low. However, the price is struggling to clear the $235 resistance (a multi-touch zone).

The 100 hourly SMA is also near the $235 level to act as a resistance. It seems like there is a short-term declining channel forming with support near $230 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. If the pair fails to stay above the channel support at $230, it could resume its decline.

The next support is near the $228 level, below which ether price might test the $225 support. Any further losses may perhaps spark a sharp decline below the $220 level in the near term.

Here Are Chances of Upside Break in ETH

The first major hurdle for Ethereum is near the $235 level. If there is an upside break above $235, the price could test the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $250 high to $228 low at $238.

If the bulls gain traction above the $235 and $238 resistance levels, ether might continue to rise. The next resistance is at $240, above which the price is likely to retest the $250 barrier.
