Ethereum Price Support

We all know that the Ethereum network 4th Hard Fork was successful. However, it did not help ETH price much, as there was no major upside move against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. In fact, the price moved down after the hard fork was completed. The price is currently under a bearish pressure, and trading near a major support area at $9.50, which holds the key in the short term.

The stated level is important because a bullish trend line formed on the hourly chart (data feed via SimpleFX) of ETH/USD is positioned near it. Also, the 100 hourly simple moving average is around the same trend line support. Lastly, the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the wave from the $9.36 low to $10.08 low is also around the same zone. So, we can say that the $9.50 support is a crucial juncture for the ETH/USD pair.
