Ethereum (ETH/USD) weakened early in today’s North American session as the pair depreciated to the 1215.43 area after trading as high as the 1268.83 area during the Asian session, with the intraday high representing a test of the recent depreciating range from 1294 to 1165.78. Traders drove ETH/USD as low as the 1181.90 area during the Asian session, with that relative low representing a test of the 50% retracement of the recent appreciating range from 1065 to 1294, and the 38.2% retracement of the broader appreciating range from 980 to 1294. Likewise, this also represented a test of the 61.8% retracement of the broader depreciating range from 1350.88 to 905.00, evidencing the technical significance of this area to chartists. If ETH/USD reverses some recent gains and depreciates below recent lows, traders will focus on potential technical support between the 908.32 and 1053.31 levels. If ETH/USD is able to extend its recent comeback further, some immediate area of potential technical resistance include the 1381.03, 1439.98, 1582.86, and 1665.31 areas. If ETH/USD weakens and returns to its pullback lower, additional downside retracement areas and additional levels of potential technical support include the 976.37, 954.16, 941.22, 917.03, 915.48, 902.24, 895.33, 869.22, 860.69, 856.83, 844.44, 831.94, 828.97, 812.73, 783.02, 770.03, 763.66, 750.28, 745.01, and 723.97 areas.
