Ethereum Price Resistance
After a nasty decline below the $500 level, ETH price started an upside recovery against the US Dollar. The price formed a base above $475 and started correcting higher. It traded above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last major drop from the $865 high to $475 low. It traded with a positive bias and even managed to settle above the $600 level.
However, there was no proper daily close above the $700 level. The price also struggled to move above the 100 simple moving average and $740 on the 4-hours chart. On the positive side, the pair almost tested the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last major drop from the $865 high to $475 low. Therefore, there are chances of ETH resuming its upside wave sooner or later above the $740 level. At the moment, it seems like there is a major contracting triangle forming with current support at $665 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD.
The pair might make the next move either above the $715 level or below the $665 support. A proper 4-hour close above $715 and 100 SMA could ignite a sharp upside move in ETH/USD. On the flip side, a break below the $665 support may call for declines toward $600 and $560.
