Ethereum’s technical picture

On the intraday charts, ETH/USD moved outside one-hour Bollinger band which its upper boundary nor creating initial support for the coin ($176.00). The local resistance awaits ETH bulls on approach to $178.00 ( SMA50 (Simple Moving Average) one hour). Once it is out of the way, the upside is likely to gain traction with the next focus on critical $180.00 strengthened by SMA100 one-hour. We will need to see a sustainable move above this handle for an extended recovery to $183.50 (SMA200 one hour).

On the downside, a move below $176.00 will take the price to $174.40 (the middle line of one-hour Bollinger Band) that’s where fresh buying orders are to stop the decline; however, if they are absorbed, the sell-off may continue towards $173.00 and the recent low of $171.90.
