The Ethereum latest news show that the ETH price needs to close above $240 if it wants to reverse its losses. The cryptocurrency declined heavily after many rejections near $250 against the US dollar. Now, it is recovering but it must settle above $240 to start a fresh increase.
Over the past week, Ethereum failed to settle above the $250 resistance level against the US dollar. As a result of that, the ETH price started a major decline below the $245 and $240 support levels.
This decline was initiated after there was a break below a key ascending channel with support at $244 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD. The pair later broke the $230 support and the 100 simple moving average (on 4 hours).
After this, the Ether price traded as low as $225 and started an upside correction. This is how it broke the $230 and $232 resistance levels. Still, the ETH price needs to go above $240 in order to reverse its losses and make things easier considering its steep fall from $250 highs to $225 lows.
It sees like there is a major hurdle forming near the $238 and $240 levels. Here, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the decent decline from $250 to a $225 low is also near $241. Therefore, a successful break above the $240 resistance zone is likely to push the price into a positive zone.
After this one, the next key resistance is near the $250 level above which the price of ETH could surge towards $265. On the downside, there is decent support forming near the $234 level and the 100 simple moving average on 4 hours. If ETH fails to stay above the $234 support line, it could continue to move down below the $230 position.
Additionally, the main support lines are near the $225 and $222 levels, below which ETH is likely to accelerate towards the $205 and $200 support levels. The technical Indicators for the Ethereum price right now are as following:
- 4 hours MACD – The MACD for ETH/USD is slowly moving in the bullish zone.
- 4 hours RSI – The RSI for ETH/USD is currently just below the 50 level.
- Major Support Level – $230
- Major Resistance Level – $240
