After forming a support base of $440, ETH slowly rises and the price broke the $450 and the $455 resistance levels to move into the positive zone. The upwards movement was such that the price climbed above the key $460 resistance level and settled above the 100 simple moving average. The swing high was formed close to the $467 and the price is now consolidating the gains. The initial support is near the $460 zone and it closed above the 23.6% fib retracement level from the upward move at $441 swing low to $467 high.

The first key support is close to the $455 level where the bulls could emerge. The 50% fib retracement level from the upward movement at $411 swing low to $467 high is near the $455 level too. There’s a major bullish trend line forming with support of $444 on the hourly charts of the pair. On the upside, the $468 and the $470 levels are important barriers so a close above it could open the doors for another increase. The next key resistance is near the $480 level.
