ETH/USD: ETH Bears Push Into Trend Line Support
Key Support Leves: $225, $215, $210.
Key Resistance Levels: $245, $250, $265.
Looking at the daily chart, we can see that ETH struggled to break the resistance at $245 this week which caused the coin to roll over and fall. The latest 3% price drop saw ETH poking beneath the rising trend line and if it closes beneath it, the coin could unwind toward $190.
This trend line has been in play for almost 3 months and a break beneath could result in negative pressure for ETH. It is important to remember that a closing candle must be seen beneath the trend line to act as confirmation that it has indeed been penetrated.

On the other side, if the bulls can rebound from the rising support line, resistance is firstly located at $245 (bearish .786 Fib Retracement). Above this, added resistance is found at $265 (bearish .886 Fib Retracement) and $275.
