In order to start a rally, ETH has to break the $470 barrier with a break above the $470 level that acts as a resistance that will open the doors for more highs above $478. In the said case, there are more chances of an increase towards $500 barrier with the intermediate resistance that could be close to the $495 level. Ethereum lacks momentum and if there’s no upside break above the $468 and the $470 resistance level that ETH will correct a few points. The initial support is near the $460 level.

The main support is forming close to the $458 level and 100 hourly simple moving average with more losses that could spike a bigger drop below the $450 support level in the near-term. The next key support for the bulls is close to the $440 level. The hourly MACD for the pair is losing momentum in the bullish zone while the hourly RSI for the pair is well above 50 levels.
