Ethereum: USD/ETH (ETH=) likely to continue higher and it break the $190 and $192 resistance levels in the near term

In the past few days, there was a sharp rally in Ethereum above the $175 and $180 resistance levels. Later, there was a downside correction, but the price remained well bid above $175 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Similarly, bitcoin price rallied above the $10,000 level and recently corrected lower. However, BTC also found support and it is climbing higher again towards the main $10,000 resistance area.

The recent swing low was near $175 before Ethereum started a fresh increase. It broke the $180 and $182 resistance levels. Moreover, there was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $199 high to $175 swing low.

The price tested the $190 resistance level, where the bears are putting up a strong fight. Additionally, it seems like the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $199 high to $175 swing low is acting as a resistance.

Therefore, an upside break above the $190 resistance is likely to open the doors for more gains in the coming sessions. The next major resistance is near the $198 and $200 levels. An intermediate resistance is $194 or the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $199 high to $175 swing low.

On the downside, there are many supports near the $180 level. Besides, there is a rising channel forming with support near $183 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. If there is a downside break, the price could test the 100 hourly SMA or the $175 support.
