Ethereum Price Trend
There was a slow and steady rise in ETH price above the $850 level against the US Dollar. The price traded higher and moved above the $865 resistance. It traded as high as $884 before starting a downside correction. There was a downside move and the price traded below the $870 level. A low was formed at $855 where buyers appeared and prevented further declines.
A fresh upside wave was initiated and the price traded above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $884 high to $855 low. On the downside, there is a connecting bullish trend line forming with support at $862 on the hourly chart. The pair is currently facing resistance near $875 and the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $884 high to $855 low. Once there is a close above the $875 level, the price may move above the recent high of $885. Above $885, the price may even break the $900 resistance.
If the price fails to move above $885, there could be a downside reaction. A break below the trend line support at $862 may perhaps ignite more declines. Any further losses would push the price towards the $825 level in the near term.
