Ethereum Price Support

There was a sharp rise in bitcoin price, which is putting pressure on ETH price below $305 against the US Dollar. The price failed to gain momentum above $307.50 and started a downside move. It broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $285.08 low to $307.57 high. The most important break was below a bullish trend line with support at $302 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. It opened the doors for more losses below $302.

The pair declined and tested the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $285.08 low to $307.57 high. It has moved below the 100 hourly simple moving average, but remains supported above $296.50. It might recover from the current levels, but has to move back above $300 and 100 hourly SMA to gain traction. On the upside, the pair needs to clear offers near $304 and $306 to move back in the bullish zone.
