Ethereum Price Support

There were heavy swing moves in ETH price recently above $700 against the US Dollar. The price gained solid momentum, moved above the $800 level and traded to a new high at $864.53. Later, the price failed to retain momentum and started a downside below $800. There was a sharp downside reaction and the price broke the $750 and $720 support levels as well. The decline was nasty and the price finally found support around $700 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Moreover, a bullish trend line with current support at $715 acted as a buy zone on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair is now moving back higher and it currently above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $864 high to $702 low. However, there is a bearish trend line on the same chart with resistance at $805-810. ETH buyers need to break the $810 resistance to push the price back in the bullish zone. Moreover, a break above the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $864 high to $702 low is needed to a push toward the $850 level.
