Ether Price Weekly Analysis Chart

The ETH/USD pair broke a major support area at $7.50, which may now act as a hurdle on the upside for a recovery. When we look at the 2-hour chart of ETH/USD, it looks like the pair is trying to recover, but facing a lot of resistances on the upside.

An initial resistance is around a bearish trend line on the chart at $7.30. However, the most important hurdle on the upside is near another bearish trend line. It is positioned with the $7.50 level.

As mentioned the stated level was a support earlier, and now may prevent an upside move in Ether price. It won’t be easy for the ETH buyers remain in action all the time.

The $7.50 resistance also coincides with the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the last decline from the $7.97 high to $7.12 low.
