Ethereum: USD/ETH (ETH=) Dives Below Crucial Support

In the past few days, we saw how ETH price struggled to clear the $192 and $195 resistance against the US Dollar. The price even settled below the $190 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. As a result, there was a sharp decline below the $185 and $180 support levels. The price declined around 10% and even broke the $172 support area. Similarly, there were strong bearish moves in bitcoin, ripple, EOS, and binance coin.

A new monthly low was formed near $166 before Ethereum started an upside correction. It recovered above the $170 level plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $188 swing high to $166 swing low. However, the upward move was capped by the $174-175 zone. Moreover, the price failed to test the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $188 swing high to $166 swing low.

Recently, there was a break below a bearish continuation pattern with support near $172 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair is now trading near the $170 level and it seems like it could continue to move down. An immediate support is near the $166 and $165 levels. However, the main target for the bears could be near the $162 level in the near term.

On the upside, there are many hurdles near the $175 level. However, the main resistance is now near the $180 and $182 levels (the previous supports). Besides, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $188 swing high to $166 swing low is also near the $180 level.
