However, buyers protected the $110-111 support area and later the price bounced back sharply. It traded above the $112, $114 and $116 resistance levels. There was also a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $124 high to $111 swing low.
More importantly, this week’s followed key bearish trend line was breached with resistance at $118 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair spiked above the $118 level and it is currently consolidating gains. Besides, the 100 hourly simple moving average is acting as a resistance near the $119-120 zone. The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $124 high to $111 swing low is also near $119.
