There has been a strong rebound in the Ethereum price lately. As the coming altcoin news show, the price of ETH has managed to reach $175 but later corrected to its current levels at $171. Still, the momentum is big and the ETH/USD pair has tested the $170 resistance level, settling above the 100 hourly simple moving average, as data from CoinMarketCap shows.
Finally, the Ethereum price broke the $169 and $170 resistance levels and extended the rally towards the $175 level (from yesterday’s altcoin news analysis), testing the $174 level and currently consolidating its gains below that level.
The initial support is near $172 and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the recent wave from the $164 swing low to $174 high. On the downside, there are currently many supports near the $170 and $169 levels which were the previous resistances. Right now, the Ethereum price is changing hands with $172 and if it corrects and stabilizes below that margin, it is likely to find support near the $168 area.
The good news, as shared on many best cryptocurrency news sites and by a lot of experts, is that the initial resistance is near $175 – which means a lot for Ether buyers. In other words, the Ethereum price could be pushed above and there could be a strong move towards the $180 and $182 resistance levels. That way, if buyers remain in action, we are likely to see a chance of a run towards the $190 resistance area.
Looking at the latest cryptocurrency news and the chart, the Ethereum price is now trading nicely above the $168, $169 and $170 support levels. As long as there is no close coming in the $168 region, the price will remain in a positive zone. Below this level, the next support will be at $164 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Right now, the overall price action is positive and the recent break above $170 suggests that bears are clearly struggling and trying to push the Ethereum price lower.
