ETH/USD trading pair has appreciated in value following the rebound from the lows experienced on Tuesday. Gaining 2% on the day, Ethereum is among the recovery leaders. The bear pressure squeezed the price past $200 for the second time this month.

Previously, Ethereum found support at $190 giving way for gains that hit a snag at the 38.2% Fib retracement level taken between the last swing high of $235.90 to a swing low of $190.80. The plunge yesterday embraced the support at $195 and ETH/USD recovered above $200.

At the moment, Ethereum is trading between the moving average support and resistance where the 50 Simple Moving Average is providing support at $200 while the 100 SMA 15-mins is limiting upward movement at $207.

Indicators are slightly bullish sending positive signals. The Relative Strength Index is moving sideways at 60 suggesting sideways trading between the resistance at $205 and support at $200. The sideways trading is also emphasized by the horizontally sloping Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD).
