ETH/USD: Technical picture

Ethereum bumped into an intraday resistance created by SMA50 4-hour at $229.00 and resumed the retreat. The local support is now located on the approach to psychological $220.00. Once it is out of the way, the downside is likely to gain traction with the next focus on  $215.30 (the lower line of 4-hour Bollinger Band). It is followed by $204.00 ( the lower line of the daily Bollinger Band) and psychological $200.00.

On the upside, a sustainable move above $229.00 will open up the way towards $230.00 and $232.00, which served as an upper line of the recent consolidation channel.
