There was a break above the USD 3200 and USD 3250 resistance levels, but there was also a break above the major bearish trendline with resistance at USD 3240 on the pair’s hourly chart. The pair is now trading above the $ 3,250 and 100 hour simple moving average. It traded above $ 3,300 and is testing the 1,236 Fib expansion level from falling from the high of $ 3,312 to the low of $ 3,131. On the flip side, initial resistance is near the $ 3355 level.
If ETH fails to keep rising above these levels, there could be another downward correction. Immediate support is on the downside near the $ 3,000 mark. The main support is forming near the $ 3250 zone and a broken trend line. A break below this support zone could push the price to the simple 100-hour moving average and the next big support could be at $ 3,200, below which the bears could test $ 3,120 again in the near future. The hourly MACD for the pair is picking up pace in the bullish territory while the main support level is at $ 3,250.

As reported recently, the Ethereum developers have made a change to the network that burns gas charges instead of passing them on to the miners. $ 221 million worth of ETH, or 70,000 ETH, has already been burned since the change. The network has been on fire since the EIP-1559 update went into effect, so the total amount of burned coins removed from circulation on the network exceeded 71,000 ETH, or $ 221.5 million. The upgrade that paid for transactions on the network, like swapping a coin on a decentralized exchange or transferring an NFT and EIP-1559, was one of five upgrades introduced on August 5th as part of the London Hard Fork.
