Ethereum’s technical picture

On the daily chart, a sustainable move above $200 will mitigate the immediate bearish pressure and create a precondition for an extended upside towards $230.00, which is the lower boundary of the recently broken channel strengthened by SMA100 (Simple Moving Average) on a daily chart.

On the downside, the initial support is created by the recent low of $190.60 closely followed by psychological $190.00 and the lower boundary of 4-hour Bollinger Band. A sustainable move below this handle will open up the way towards the next  bearish aim of $183.00 (SMA200, daily chart)
