  • Ethereum is still facing a heavy resistance near the $360 and $365 levels.
  • The price is currently stuck near the $355 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

  • The pair is likely to continue lower if it breaks the $352 and $350 support levels.

Ethereum Price is Facing Many Hurdles

Ethereum remained stable above the $350 support level, but it is still facing a heavy resistance near the $360 and $365 levels. ETH started an upward move from the $350 low and climbed above the 100 hourly simple moving average.

There was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $369 high to $350 low. However, the $360 resistance and the broken bullish trend line seems to be acting as a strong resistance for the bulls.

The 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $369 high to $350 low is also acting as a resistance. Ether price is currently declining and trading near the $355 support level.

It seems like there is a new connecting bullish trend line forming with support near $352 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. If ether continues to move down and breaks the trend line support at $352, there is a risk of a bearish break.

The next major support is near the $350 and $348 levels, below which the bears are likely to aim a larger decline towards the $335 support level in the near term.

Chances of Upside Break in ETH?

If Ethereum manages to stay above the $352 and $350 support levels, there are chances of an upside break. An initial resistance is near the $360 level.

The first key resistance could be near the $362 level, above which the bulls might aim a clear break above the $365 resistance level. The next major resistance is near the $375 zone.
