Ethereum Price Upside Ride
Finally, there was a break above the $53.60 resistance in ETH price against the US Dollar. The price gained a lot of strength, and was able to break the $54.50 resistance area. It opened the doors for a nasty move up, as the price broke the $56 and $57 resistance levels. A new weekly high was formed at $58.08 where the price faced resistance and started a downside move.
It looks like a correction is initiated, as the price has now moved below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $53.22 low to $58.08 high. The most important move was below a short-term bullish trend line with support at $57.30 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. It has opened the doors for an extended correction towards $56. The next support could be near the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $53.22 low to $58.08 high.
Let us see how the price trades in the near term if it tests $56. Any further declines may call for a complete test of the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $53.22 low to $58.08 high where buyers might appear.
