Ethereum Price Is Approaching Next Break
After a strong rally above $350 and $400, Ethereum faced a significant bearish move against the US Dollar. A high was formed near $417 before the price tumbled (similar to bitcoin and ripple) below $400 and $350.
The price even spiked below the $330 support level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. However, it found a strong buying interest near $305 and $300. Ether recovered sharply above the $330 and $350 levels.
There was a break above the $365 and $370 levels. The price is now trading near the $385 resistance zone. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $416 swing high to $353 swing low. It seems like there is a key contracting triangle forming with resistance near $385 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.

If ether price breaks the triangle resistance, it could test the $390 resistance. The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $416 swing high to $353 swing low is also near the $392 level.
A successful break above the triangle resistance and $392 could open the doors for a fresh increase above the $400 level. In the mentioned case, the price is likely to rise towards the $415 and $420 levels in the coming sessions.
Dips Likely To Be Contained in ETH
