Ethereum price nosedived recently and traded close to the $200 handle against the US Dollar. ETH price is currently correcting higher, but it is likely to struggle near $240.
After a downside break below the $295 support, Ethereum price started a major drop against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair broke an ascending channel with support near $295 to enter a bearish zone. Later, the price broke the key $264 support level. As a result, there was a sharp drop below the $250 support and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). Finally, the price broke the $220 support level and traded close to the $200 handle.
A new monthly low was formed near $203 and the price recently corrected higher. It broke the $215 level and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $279 high to $203 low. However, the price is facing a lot of hurdles near $235, $238 and $240. Moreover, there is a major bearish trend line forming with current resistance near $240 on the 4-hours chart.
The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $279 high to $203 low is also near the $240 zone to act as a resistance. Therefore, the price must clear the trend line and the $240 area to move back into a positive zone. If there is a break above $240, the price could climb back above the $250 level. The next key resistance is near the $262 and $264 levels.
On the flip side, if the price fails to climb above $238 or $240, it could start a fresh decline. An initial support on the downside is near the $215 level, below which the price may decline towards the $200 handle.
Looking at the chart, Ethereum price is clearly trading in a bearish zone below the $240 level. As long as the price is below $238 and $240, it remains at a risk of more losses in the coming sessions.
