Ethereum price analysis

Yesterday, Ethereum prices continued to climb and broke the resistance levels of $170 and $175. Soon after, Ethereum broke through the $178 and 100-hour SMA again. The seller appeared when it was near $180. Subsequently, the price of the currency began to fall and fell below the support level of $175. After exposing the currency hacking and 7,000 bitcoins, the Ethereum price began to accelerate. Soon after, Ethereum fell below $169 and 100 hours SMA.

In the downside, Ethereum fell below the last fluctuating 61.8% Fibonacci retracement (from a low of $160 to a high of $180). However, Ethereum eventually found support at the level of $164 and is currently consolidating losses. The first resistance is at $168 and the 100-hour SMA. In addition, the last drop of the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement (from a high of $180 to a low of $164) is also around $168. Above $168, there are also many resistance levels around $170 and $172.

On the hourly price chart, there is a short-term connected bearish trend line with resistance at $172. The trend line coincides with the last 50% Fibonacci retracement (falling from a high of $180 to a low of $164). Therefore, if you want to start a new round of rise, you must break through $172. The next key resistance is $175 and $180.
