Traders lifted ETH/USD from the 980.00 area during the Asian session, a level that represented a test of the 61.8% retracement of the appreciating range from 886.33 to 1136.93. Chartists are observing ETH/USD’s vacillations between retracement levels related to the recent depreciating range from 1350.88 to 905.00, with the 1075.33 area and 1010.23 area representing the 38.2% and 23.6% retracements.
