Looking at the 30-minute chart of ETH/USD, the pair consolidated in a range above the key $175.00 support area in the past few sessions. Bears made many attempts to push the price below the $175.00 support, but they failed.

There was a break below the 25 simple moving average (30-min) and the 50% Fib retracement level of the last major upside from the $166.87 low to $187.96 high. However, bulls managed to protect the $175.00 support area.

Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last major upside from the $166.87 low to $187.96 high acted as a solid support. The price is currently consolidating and it recently climbed above a short-term resistance at $180.00 and the 25 SMA.

If the price continues to move higher it could revisit the $185.00 resistance area. The main resistance is near the $188.00 level, where sellers might take a stand. If there is an upside break above $188.00, Ethereum is likely to trade to a new 2019 high above the $190.00 level.

On the downside, the $175.00 support holds a lot of importance for Ether price. If ETH fails to stay above the $175.00 support area, there could be an extended decline towards the $166.70 swing low. In the mentioned scenario, there could be bearish moves in bitcoin, ripple, bitcoin cash, litecoin, cardano and other altcoins as well.
