When we have a look at the hourly chart of ETH/USD, it looks like there is a range pattern forming. On the upside, the $7.40 level is acting as a major resistance and prevented upsides on more than three occasions.

On the downside, the $7.10 support just managed to hold losses. There was a break below the stated support once, but the pair quickly recovered.

However, the pair is continuously facing sellers near $7.40, which is acting as a hurdle for a push higher. We need to keep in mind that the $7.50 level is also a crucial resistance on the upside.

When we move on to the 4-hour chart of ETH/USD, there are two bearish trend lines formed. Both are acting as a resistance on the upside together and preventing gains. The interesting aspect is the fact that the trend lines are positioned near $7.40.

Moreover, the same level represents the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the last drop from the $7.98 high to $7.02 low. So, it looks like the $7.40 resistance is a critical barrier for buyers on the upside. As long as the price is below it, there can be another test of $7.10.

Only a successful H4 close above the highlighted resistance area could trigger additional gains in ETH/USD.
