Ether Price Analysis Chart

The ETH/USD pair managed to find support near $9.50, and moved higher. The recent upside move was strong enough to break a couple of important resistance levels.

The most important break was of $9.80. It was acting as a crucial hurdle for a recovery in Ether price, and a break above it means the chances of further upsides are very high.

A new weekly high was formed at $10.22, and it looks like the pair may now correct a few points lower. If a correction is commenced, then an initial support can be around the $10.00 level. It also represents the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level of the recent wave from the $9.45 low to $10.22 high.

Looking at the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD, there is another break visible. There was a monster bearish trend line, which was cleared during the upside move.
