Ethereum Price Support
Yesterday, there were a few swing moves below $460 in ETH price against the US Dollar. Finally, the ETH/USD pair managed to move higher and broke the $460 and $465 resistance levels. It even settled above the $468 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It seems like the price formed a decent base near the $445 level before the current bullish wave.
During the rise, there was a break above a major declining channel with resistance at $461 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair traded as high as $485 and it is currently correcting lower. There was a test of the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $446 low to $485 high. However, declines were protected near the $468 support area. More importantly, there is a strong support near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $446 low to $485 high at $466. If the price declines from the current levels, it is likely to find support near the $468 and $466 levels.
Looking at the chart, the price is placed nicely above $466 and it may perhaps extend gains above the $485 level. The next resistances are sitting near the $496 and $500 levels.
