Ethereum Price Holding Key Supports

This past week, Ethereum extended its rise above the $240 resistance against the US Dollar. ETH price traded close to the $250 resistance level and settled well above the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).

Ether traded as high as $249 and started a fresh downside correction (similar to bitcoin). There was a break below the $242 and $240 support levels, but the $235 support zone acted as a strong buy region.

The price is currently rising and trading above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downside correction from the $249 swing high to $235 low. It is currently facing a strong resistance near the $240-$242 region.

There is also a crucial contracting triangle forming with resistance near $242 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD. The triangle resistance coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the downside correction from the $249 swing high to $235 low.

If there is a successful break above the triangle resistance at $242, the price is likely to start a fresh increase. The main resistance on the upside is still near the $250 level, above which the price could start a strong rally towards $262 and $265.

Fresh Decline in ETH?

If Ethereum fails to continue higher above the $240 and $242 resistance levels, there are chances of a downside break. The first major support is near the triangle lower trend line at $238.

The mains support is near the $235 level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours), below which the price could dive sharply towards the $$220 support area.
