ETH/USD: Technical picture

On the intraday charts, ETH/USD cleared the resistance created by 4-hour SMA100 at $208.00; however, it is still below psychological $210.00. The price stopped short of the upper line of a triangle pattern that separates us from and extended recovery towards $215.00 guarded by the upper line of the 4-hour Bollinger Band, and the recent high $227.35. Considering the upward-looking RSI, the upside breakthrough looks likely at this stage. 

On the downside, the local support is created by the above-said 4-hour SMA50. Once it is out of the way, the sell-off is likely to gain traction with the next focus on the intraday low on approach to $202.14. It is closely followed by psychological $200.00 and the upside trend line at $198.30 reinforced by 4-hour SMA100.
