Ether Price to Retest $340?
There is no change in the near term for ETH/USD as it managed to hold key support levels and recover after yesterday’s sharp decline.

The price slowly moved higher and is currently trading above the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the last drop from the $345.24 high to $293.11 low.
Looking at the hourly chart of ETH/USD, there is a key bullish trendline forming with support at $318.00. On the upside, a connecting resistance trendline at $325.00 is preventing further gains.
A successful breach of the resistance trendline at $325.00 would push the pair towards the next hurdle at $340.00-345.00. Trading a few points above $320.00, the pair maintains a bullish bias according to intraday technical readings, with the hourly chart showing that Ether’s price is well above a bullish 21 SMA.
Below the trendline support at $318.00 the next short term support comes at $310.00, en route to the $300.00 zone, where ETH/USD has a strong support.
