Later, there were two attempts to break the $10.50 support area, but there was no proper close below the stated support area. As a result, the price is now back above the stated level.

When we look at the 2-hour chart of ETH/USD, there is a clear support formation at $10.50-10.45. It is acting as a barrier for Ether price, and preventing further losses. The stated levels are just above the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of the last wave from the $10.17 low to $11.00 high.

So, it looks like the mentioned area is holding well, but remains at a risk of breakdown. On the upside, there are a few points to note. First, there are two bearish trend lines, which may continue to act as a hurdle at $10.60 and $10.65.

Second, if there is a close above the $10.65 level, there is a chance of more gains in ETH/USD. Lastly, the trend lines are acting as a crucial resistance, and it won’t be easy for the price to close above it.
