Last week, ETHUSD tested the support at $153 zone again, which proved very strong support and jumped higher breaching the descending trendline and the 50-day moving average. On the upside, first resistance for ETHUSD now stands at 182.18 today’s top, while more selling pressure will be met at the 100-day moving average at $188.72. A convincing close above that level will open the way for a visit at $200 where the number two crypto stopped the previous week. On the downside first support for ETH stands at $180.42 daily low, below this level more buying interest might await at the lows seen at $153.
