Ethereum Price Eyes Recovery

Ethereum price managed to form a support base above the $2,165 level. ETH seems to be consolidating losses near the $2,200 level and might aim for a recovery wave, like Bitcoin.

Ethereum is now trading below $2,250 and the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average. On the upside, the first major resistance is near the $2,240 level. It is close to the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the key drop from the $2,480 swing high to the $2,165 low.

The next major resistance is near the $2,280 or the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average, above which the price might rise and test the 50% Fib retracement level of the key drop from the $2,480 swing high to the $2,165 low. If the bulls push the price above the $2,320 resistance, they could aim for $2,360.
