Finally, there was a successful close above the $300.00 resistance and the price spiked towards the $310.00-312.00 resistance area. An intraday high was formed at $311.00 and the price is currently correcting lower.
It broke the $306.00 support plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $284.43 low to $311.00 high. However, the $305.00 level and the 25 simple moving average (30-min) are currently holding losses.

Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $284.43 low to $311.00 high is also near the $297.65 level to act as a support.
On the upside, the recent high near $311.00 is an initial resistance. If there is an upside break above $311.00, the price could start a strong rise towards the $320.00 and $325.00 levels.
Overall, Ethereum price is currently trading with a positive bias above $305.00 and $300.00 support levels. As long as ETH/USD is above $298.00, it is likely to climb further higher.
