Ethereum Price Drops 6%

Yesterday, Ethereum faced a strong rejection near the main $250 resistance against the US Dollar. ETH price formed a high near the $250 level and recently started a sharp decline below $245.

The recent drop was initiated after there was a break below a major triangle with support near $244 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. It opened the doors for more losses below the $240 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Ether price even broke the key $235 support and traded close to the $225 support. A low is formed near $228 and the price is currently correcting higher. It is approaching the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $250 swing high to $228 low.

On the upside, there is a crucial resistance forming near the $235 level (a multi-touch zone). If Ethereum closes above the $235 resistance, it could test the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $250 swing high to $228 low at $238.

Any further gains may perhaps open the doors for a fresh increase towards the significant resistance at $250 in the coming sessions.

Breakdown Support for ETH

On the downside, the $228 and $225 levels are important supports. If Ethereum fails to stay above the $225 support, it will negate the chances of a near-term recovery.

In the mentioned bearish case, the price is likely to continue lower below the $220 level. The next major support is near the $215 level, where the bulls may take a stand.
