Ethereum Price Analysis
After testing the $230 support, Ethereum price started a steady rise against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair broke many hurdles on the way up, including $245 and $250. There was a close above the $250 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Recently, bitcoin price started a strong upward move, pushing ETH above the key $265 resistance. It opened the doors for more gains above the $265 and $270 levels.

During the rise, there was a break above a declining channel with resistance near the $251 level on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair traded above the $270 level and formed a new weekly high at $272. The price is currently correcting lower and is trading near $268. An initial support is at $266 and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $246 low to $272 high. However, the main support is now at $265 (the previous resistance area). The next key support could be near the $259-260 zone.

It coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $246 low to $272 high. If there are further losses, the price could find support near the $252 level and the 100 hourly SMA. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $272 level, above which the price may perhaps rally above the $275 level. The main resistance is near the $280 level, followed by the $300 handle.
