Ethereum Price Decline Continues
The past few days were super bearish for ETH price as it declined below $200 and $180 against the US Dollar. The price recently traded as low as $136.55 where it found bids and currently correcting higher. It has already moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $197.35 high to $136.55 low. However, any major recoveries from the current levels may be difficult since there are many hurdles like $155 and $178.
On the upside, there is a new connecting bearish trend line with resistance at $166 forming on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The same trend line resistance is also near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $197.35 high to $136.55 low. Even if there is a break above the trend line at $156, there is another barrier at $178. The stated level is a pivot zone around $180, which also coincides with the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Only a successful close above $180 or the 100 hourly simple moving average may avert the current bearish trend. If the price fails, it may resume the downtrend, and could even retest $140. However, sellers also need to be careful, considering the price has decent supports near $140-130.
