Ethereum Price Resistance

It seems like there is no stopping sellers as ETH price declined below the $420 and $410 levels against the US Dollar. The price failed to correct substantially and faced heavy offers near $425. Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $461 high to $410 also acted as a hurdle. A fresh downside wave was initiated and the price moved below the $410 support. A new low was formed at $397.30 and is currently correcting higher.

It moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $460.54 high to $397.30 low. However, it once again faced sellers and struggled to break the $425 zone. There are also two key bearish trend lines forming with resistance around $420 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. These trend lines are near the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $460.54 high to $397.30 low. Therefore, it won’t be easy for buyers to break the $420-425 resistance zone.
