Similarly, the ETH/USD pair fell sharply from the $98.00 swing high to well below $80.00. A low was formed at $78.74 from where the pair started a recovery.

There is a crucial bullish trend line on the daily chart at $78.00, which acted as a major support and preventing further losses. At the moment, the price is trading above the trend line support and may trade higher in the near term.

It seems like a short-term corrective structure was completed at $78.00 since it is near the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the last wave from the $42.00 low to $103.00 high, at the very least the first wave of A-B-C pattern was over at $78.00.

The next move in Ether price mostly depends on how well buyers gather momentum above $90.00. If they succeed in keeping ETH/USD above the highlighted trend line support for a long time, there are chances of a sharp rise towards $100.00.

Ether Price Technical Analysis Chart

The 2-hour chart suggests that the pair is consolidating above the $87.00 support area with resistance at $93.00-93.50. At the moment, the pair is approaching the range resistance and is in the fith wave inside the channel structure.

Should ETH/USD breaks past $93.00 and an H2 close above the stated level takes place, the pair may gain momentum and continue pushing higher.

On the downside, we need to keep an eye on $87.00. A break below it might push the price towards the daily trend line support, which holds the key for the current bullish trend.
