On the downside, we need to keep an eye on the $8.00 support, as it is a major barrier. As long as the price is above it, there is a chance of ETH/USD extending the current bullish trend.

The stated support also coincides with the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement of the recent wave from the $5.84 low to $8.89 high. On the upside, the $8.80 resistance is key for the Ether buyers.

A break above it may call for a test of $9.00, which is the next resistance on the upside. The 4-hours chart of ETH/USD also highlights the $8.80 resistance. The price failed on more than two occasions, and was seen struggling.
