It looks like the ETH/USD pair chewed strong bids near a major support area at $80.00-82.00 and bounced back. The upside move easily propelled the pair above the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of the last decline from the $93.00 high to $78.74 low.

It almost tested the last swing high at $93.00, and is now trading comfortably above $89.00. The stated level might once again provide support and stop any declines in the short term.

Looking at the hourly chart of ETH/USD, there is likely an inverse head and shoulders forming, while not perfect, it holds a base around $89.00 with a clear head (as shown in the chart).

If the highlighted pattern is true, there is a chance that ETH/USD would break $95.00 soon and retest the all-important $100.00 resistance.

 Ether’s price must stay above $89.00-88.00 for the pattern to be validated. Moving on to the 4-hour chart of ETH/USD, the pair is currently trading near a major resistance at $92.00.
