Looking at the 30-minute chart of ETH/USD, the pair faced an increase in selling pressure and broke the $170.00 support plus the 25 simple moving average (30-min). A new intraday low was formed at $167.47 and the price is currently correcting higher.

It broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $178.42 high to $167.47 low. However, there are many resistances on the upside near the $172.00, $172.80 and $173.50 levels.

An initial resistance is near $172.00 and the 25 simple moving average (30-min). The next key resistance is near $172.90 and the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $178.42 high to $167.47 low.

However, the main resistance is at $173.50, above which the price could move back towards the $178.50 resistance area. Conversely, if Ethereum buyers fail to clear the $172.90 or $173.50 resistance, there could be a fresh decline.

On the downside, the main support is at $167.50 and $166.20. Only a close below the $166.20 support area could push the price in a bearish zone.

Overall, Ethereum price could trade in a range for a few sessions and it could struggle near $173.50 in the short term. However, as long as the price is above the $162.00 pivot level, ETH is likely to climb above $178.50 and $180.00 in the coming days.
