Ether Price Analysis Chart

A new weekly high was formed near $8.55, as the price even managed to surpass the $8.50 resistance. It looks like the ETH/USD pair is struggling to successfully close above the $8.50 level.

So, there is a chance of a correction in the short term. An initial support on the downside is around a bullish trend line on the hourly chart at $8.40. A break below the stated level may call for a test of the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $7.04 low to $8.55 high.

However, the most important support on the downside is around $8.00. It may stop the downside corrective move if the pair dips further from the current levels. The stated level also represents the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $7.04 low to $8.55 high.
