Ethereum Price Support
The past few sessions were mostly positive above the $590 support in ETH price against the US Dollar. The price dipped once towards the $590 support, but declines were limited. Buyers defended losses below the $590 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. There was a sharp recovery and the price moved back above the $600 pivot level.
At the outset, the price is comfortably placed above the $610 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It also settled above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $636 swing high to $573 low. On the upside, a break and close above the $614-615 area is needed for further gains. A successful break above this will most likely open the doors for a ride towards $635. On the flip side, if the price moves down, there is a decent support around the $600 level. There is also a key bullish trend line in place with support at $602 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.
Looking at the chart, the price remains well supported above the $602-605 levels and the 100 hourly SMA. As long as the price is above $602, there could be more gains above the $615 resistance in the near term.
