Ethereum Price Resistance
There was a slow and steady recovery initiated from the $750 swing low in ETH price against the US Dollar. The price gained traction and was able to move above the $900 resistance level. There was also a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1415 high to $753 low. There are many positive signs on the chart above $1000. However, the price is currently facing a major upside barrier near $1150 and $1180.
