Looking at the 30-minute chart of ETH/USD, the pair broke the key $270.00 and $262.00 support levels to start a strong downward move. Later, the price broke the $245.00 pivot level and settled well below the 25 simple moving average (30-min).
The price even traded close to the $200.00 level and a new monthly low was formed near $202.94. Recently, Ethereum price started an upside correction and traded above the $215.00 level.
There was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $239.81 high to $202.94 low. However, the price is facing many hurdles on the upside near the $225.00 and $232.00 levels.
Currently, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $239.81 high to $202.94 low is acting as a resistance. Moreover, there is a major resistance forming near $232.00 and a bearish trend line on the same chart.
To start a decent recovery, the price must break the $225.00 and $232.00 resistance levels, with a close above the 25 simple moving average (30-min).
However, the main resistance is near the $245.00 pivot level, above which Ethereum price might recover towards the $270.00 level. On the downside, the $202.00 and $200.00 levels are key supports, below which ETH price could test the $185.00 support.
