  • Ethereum saw a sharp drop well above $ 1,200 and was trading near $ 900.
  • The price is bouncing back well from $ 912 but faces hurdles near $ 1,130 and the 100-hour simple moving average.
  • There is a large bearish trendline on the hourly chart of ETH / USD (data feed via Kraken) with resistance near USD 1,130.
  • The pair will have to settle above $ 1,130 and the 100-hour SMA to start a new rally.

The Ethereum price makes up for losses

Yesterday we saw a massive drop in Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple and other altcoins. ETH price was down nearly 30%, breaking many key supports near $ 1,120 and $ 1,050.

There was also a break below the USD 1,000 support level and the price traded near the USD 900 level. A swing low was formed near $ 912 before the price rose again. It appears that the bulls have defended the final swing region near the $ 900 $ -920 zone.

Ether price is up over 10% and is trading well above $ 1,000. There was a break above the 23.6% fib retracement level of the downside correction from the high of $ 1,352 to the low of $ 912.

However, the price faces hurdles near $ 1,130 and the 100-hour simple moving average. There is also a major bearish trendline with resistance near USD 1,130 on the ETH / USD hourly chart. The trendline is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward correction from USD 1,352 swing high to USD 912 swing low.

To start a new rally, the ether price must eliminate the $ 1,130 trendline resistance and the 100 hour simple moving average. The next major resistance above $ 1,130 is near the $ 1,200 level.

Fresh dips at ETH?

If Ethereum fails to hit the USD 1,130 resistance and 100-hour simple moving average, it could see another decline. Initial downside support is near the USD 1,050 level.

The first major support is near the $ 1,000 level. A downside break below the $ 1,000 level could potentially trigger another drop towards the $ 900-920 support zone in the coming sessions.
