Ethereum Price Resistance

Yesterday, there was a start of an upside correction above $720 in ETH price against the US Dollar. The price traded towards the $780 level, but it could not hold gains. It topped around the $776 level and failed to test the $780 level. Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $830 high to $694 low also acted as a strong barrier.

Lastly, the price seems to be struggling to settle above $760 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It is currently under pressure and broke the $740 support level. At the moment, it seems like the price may break the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $693 low to $776 high. If sellers remain in action, the price may even break the $724 support and extend its slide. The next support could $715 or $712. On the upside, there is a key connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance at $745 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.

Looking at the chart, the price is clearly under pressure below $745. As long as it is below the trend line, $750, and the 100 hourly SMA, it is likely to extend its decline in the near term.
