Ethereum price is showing positive signs and is trading nicely above the key $ 175 support area. Moreover, there was a break above the $ 180 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
The last swing high was formed $ 186 and it is recently corrected lower. There was a break below the $ 182 support and the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $ 176 low to $ 186 high. Additionally, the price spiked below the $ 180 support level. However, the $ 178 level acted as a strong support.
