The price did move higher, cleared a couple of hurdles during the upside move. The main was $10.55-10.60 resistance and a bearish trend line on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.

There was also a move above the 23% Fibonacci retracement level of the last decline from the $11.00 high to $10.41 low. The price later moved close to the 1.236 extension of the last decline from the $10.66 high to $10.41 low.

The upside move found resistance near $10.70, which acted like a strong barrier and pushed the price down. ETH/USD corrected below the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level of the last leg from the $10.41 low to $10.70 high.

However, the $10.55 support came into the picture, and prevented any further losses. The pair is now back above the stated level, and attempting to move higher.

On the other hand, the 4-hour chart of ETH/USD signals caution. The last candle around $10.70 seems to be a rejection signal. It looks like a shooting star candle, which means the price was rejected near $10.70, and could move down further.
