- Ethereum price recovery stalled on approach to strong technical level.

ETH peaked at $185.30 on October 8 and retreated to $184.00 by the time of writing.

Ethereum’s technical picture
ETH bumped into stiff resistance on approach to $185.00. A confluence of technical indicators including SMA50 (Simple Moving Average) on a daily chart and the middle line of one-day Bollinger Band serves as a strong barrier that stopped the recovery for the time being. Once it is out of the way, the upside is likely to gain traction with the next focus on psychological $200.00 closely followed by SMA100 daily on $207.00.
On the downside, the selling pressure is likely to increase on a breakthrough below $180.00. This development will lead to an extended correction towards the next psychological area $170.00 closely followed by October 6 low of $168.83. A sustainable move above this handle may open up the way towards this week’s low of $164.50 and psychological $160.00.
