ETH/USD: Technical picture
While ETH recovery above $200.00 helped to improve the technical picture, a lack of follow-through may be a concern for ETH bulls. The coin bumped into a resistance created by 4-hour SMA100 and the middle line of the daily Bollinger Band at $203.00 and retreated towards $201.00.
From the technical point of view, a sustainable move above $203.00 improves the short-term picture and allows for an extended recovery towards the next barrier created by 4-hour SMA50 at $205.50.
