Ethereum's technical picture

On the daily chart, a recovery is capped by the lower line of the previously broken channel at $230. This barrier is closely followed by SMA100 (Simple Moving Average) on 1-day chart at $234.00. Once it is cleared, the upside is likely to gain traction with the next focus on psychological $250.00; however, even stronger resistance comes at $270 with SMA50 daily and the middle line of 1-day Bollinger Band making it a hard nut to crack. 

On the downside, the initial support is created by the middle line of 4-hour Bollinger Band at $214. A sustainable move below this handle will open up the way towards the next bearish aim of $200 and $195 (the lower lim=ne of 4-hour Bollinger Band). The next support awaits at the recent low of $192.00.
