Ethereum Price Analysis
After a failed upside attempt near $195, ETH price started a fresh decline against the US Dollar. The price broke the key $192 support level to move back into a bearish zone. Moreover, there was a close below the $190 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. On the downside, the $184 level seems to be acting as a decent support. Similarly, there were mostly bearish moves in bitcoin below the $10,300 and $10,400 levels.
At the moment, Ethereum is trading near the $185 level. An immediate support is near the $184 level. If there is a downside break below the $184 support, the price could test the $182 support. The main support is near the $180 level, below which there is a risk of a sharp decline in the coming sessions.
On the upside, an initial resistance is near $187 plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent slide from the $195 swing high to $184 low. Moreover, there is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance at $187 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. If there is an upside break above the trend line and $187, the price could test the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Additionally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent slide from the $195 swing high to $184 low is near the $190 level to act as a strong resistance. A convincing close above the $190 resistance and the 100 hourly SMA could push the price towards the $195 resistance.
Looking at the chart, Ethereum price is trading with a bearish angle below the $190 resistance level. Therefore, there are high chances of more downsides below the $184 and $182 support levels. Similarly, bitcoin price could struggle to recover above $10,250 and it might decline below $10,000.
