More importantly, there was a break below the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of the last wave from the 0.0326BTC low to 0.0360BTC high. However, the downside move was protected by a crucial bullish trend line with current support at 0.0336BTC.

At the outset, it seems like there is a major breakout pattern in place with resistance at 0.0352BTC on the same chart. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the 0.0345BTC level, above which sellers are most likely to defend more gains above the 0.0350BTC level.

To move into a positive zone, the price has to break the 0.0350BTC, 0.0352BTC, and 0.0360BTC resistance levels. On the other hand, a downside break below the triangle support could open the doors for a push towards the 0.0326BTC low.

The final bearish target could be the 1.236 Fib extension level of the last wave from the 0.0326BTC low to 0.0360BTC high at 0.0318BTC. The current price action is indicating a short-term bearish bias below the 0.0345BTC and the 100 hourly SMA.

To sum up, Ethereum price is approaching the next key break either above 0.0350BTC or below 0.0335BTC. The next move in ETH/BTC possibly depends whether ETH/USD succeeds in clearing the $235-240 resistance zone.
