Ethereum Support and Resistance
Ethereum during October capped by the descending trend line which started mid-September. Last week ETHUSD tested the support at $170 zone and started a correction higher but today that is not the case. On the downside where traders attention turns, first support for ETH stands at 155.98 daily low, below this level more buying interest might await at the lows seen on September 26th at $153. On the flip side, immediate resistance for Ethereum now stands at 171.53 today’s high, while more selling pressure will be met at $177 where the descending trendline crosses before an attempt to regain the 50-day moving average. A convincing close above that level will open the way for a visit to the 100-day moving average at $194.22.
