Recently, there was a downward move from the $100.32 high in ETH/USD. The pair declined below $92.00 and $90.00, but it found a strong buying interest near the $88.00 level.
ETH/BTC remained in a tight range around the 0.0260BTC level. The pair must surpass the 0.0270BTC and 0.0275BTC resistance levels to start a decent recovery toward 0.0300BTC. If not, it could decline to 0.0250BTC before trading higher.
Looking at the 2-hour chart, ETH/USD recently declined below the $92.00 support and the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the move from the $82.37 low to $100.32 high. However, Ether buyers protected losses below $87.00 and later there was a solid support formed near $88.00.
The price started a fresh upward move and traded above the $90.00 resistance and a bearish trendline, with resistance at $89.50 on the same chart. The recent move was positive above the $91.00 level and the 23.6 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the recent drop from the $102.32 high to $87.36 low.
To the topside, there are a few key hurdles for buyers near $92.00, $94.00, and the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the recent drop. Above $94.00, the price will most likely climb toward $98.00 or even $100.00 in the near term.
The 30-minute chart of ETH/USD suggests that an immediate support is at $90.00, below which the price could test the $88.00 support and a major bullish trendline, with support at $88.00 on the 2-hour chart.
The short-term price action is positive as long as Ether is above the $88.00 support. The main support below $88.00 is close to the last swing low at $82.00.
