Ethereum saw a whipsaw-like action in trading this week after starting above $1,300 and dropping into the $1,050 support (.382 Fib Retracement). From there, it rebounded on Wednesday as it pushed higher but became stuck at a short term falling trend line.
ETH then headed lower but found support at $1,165 (.236 Fib Retracement). It rebounded from this support today to break above the short term falling trend line and reach as high as $1,295. It has since dropped slightly and is trading at the resistance of around $1,275, provided by a bearish .886 Fib Retracement. This resistance stalled the market in the first week of January 2020.
