ETH/USD: Technical picture

On the intraday charts, ETH/USD failed to clear the resistance created by 1-hour SMA100 on approach to $210.00. After several attempts, the price resumed the decline towards SMA50 at $206.00. A sustainable move below this barrier increased the downside pressure. Now this line serves as initial resistance. However, only a move above $210-$212 area will allow for the upside to gain traction and bring the longer-term barrier $220.00 back into focus.

On the downside, the local support is created by the intraday low on approach to $203.00. It is closely followed by psychological $200.00 and the upside trend line at $195.00. This the pivotal level that separates the natural correction from the resumed downside trend.
