The price moved above the $245.00 level and it is currently testing the 25 simple moving average (30-min). On the upside, there are many hurdles near the $253.00 and $255.00 levels.
There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance at $253.00 on the same chart. The trend line coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $271.21 high to $235.39 low.
Therefore, if there is an upside correction, the price is likely to face a strong selling interest near $253.00 and $255.00. If there is an upside break above $255.00, the price is likely to recover above the $260.00 and $262.00 levels.
Conversely, if Ethereum price fails to move above the $255.00 barrier, there is a risk of a fresh decline. An immediate support is near the $240.00 level, below which the price could test the $235.00 support area. Any further losses may push ETH price towards the key $224.00 support area in the coming sessions.
