During the upside move, it broke a couple of short-term resistance levels like the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of the last decline from the $8.92 high to $7.79 low.

However, the pair found resistance near a major area at $8.75-80. The stated area was a support earlier and now acting as a hurdle for recovery in ETH/USD. There was a strong selling interest, which pushed the pair down towards the $8.25 level.

During the recent downside, the pair broke a bullish trend line formed on the 30-min chart, and likely heading towards another similar trend line aligned at $8.10 where there is a chance of buyers taking a stand.

When we look at the 2-hours chart of ETH/USD, then we will understand why the $8.80 resistance is important. There is a monster bearish trend line formed, which acted as a barrier and prevented a break.

The pair was rejected, and as a result, a downside move is initiated. The last two candles are like shooting stars, which means the pair may be forming a short-term top.

If the recent rejection is valid, the pair might move down towards the $8.00 handle before attempting a recovery once again. On the upside, the pair needs to break the $8.80 resistance for further gains.
