Ethereum Price Remains Strong

Ethereum found support near the $1,250 level after a strong decline. ETH traded as low as $1,253 and started a fresh increase. There was a steady increase and the price was able to clear the $1,300 resistance.

The bulls were active above the $1,300 level. There was a clear move above the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $1,399 swing high to $1,253 low. The price is now trading above $1,320 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

There is also a short-term contracting triangle forming with support at $1,340 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. On the upside, the price is facing resistance near the $1,350 and $1,355 levels.

The next major resistance is near $1,365 level. It is near the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $1,399 swing high to $1,253 low. A clear break above $1,365 might start a decent increase towards the $1,400 level.

Any more gains may perhaps open the doors for a move towards the $1,450 resistance, above which the bulls could aim a move to $1,500.

Fresh Decline in ETH?

If ethereum fails to climb above the $1,355 resistance, it could start a fresh decline. An initial support on the downside is near the $1,340 level and the triangle lower trend line.
