On the upside, there is a major hurdle forming near the $550 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. There is also a short-term contracting triangle forming with resistance near $528 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.

If there is an upside break above the triangle resistance, the price could test the $550 barrier. It is also close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $623 swing high to $478 low. To move back into a positive zone, the price must clear the $550 resistance and settle above the 100 hourly SMA.

More Losses in ETH?

If ethereum fails to recover above the triangle resistance or $550, there could be a fresh decline. An initial support is near the $510 level and the triangle lower trend line.

A downside break below the triangle support could push the price below the $500 level. The main support is near the $480 level, below which there is a risk of a drop towards the $450 level.
