Ethereum Price Analysis
This past week, there was a decent upward move above $130 in Ethereum price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair even broke the $135 resistance and revisited the $140 barrier. However, buyers failed once again to clear the $140 resistance. As a result, there was a fresh decline and the price traded below the $138 and $136 support levels. There was even a close below the $135 level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours).
During the slide, the price broke the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $122 low to $140 high. Moreover, there was a break below a connecting bullish trend line with support at $133 on the 4-hours chart. The pair even broke the $130 level and traded close to the $127 level. The 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $122 low to $140 high is also near the $127 level. If there is an upside correction, the $133 level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours) are likely to act as resistances.
Above the 55 simple moving average (4-hours), there is a key bearish trend line formed with resistance at $136. Therefore, the price is likely to struggle near the $133 and $136 levels in the near term. The main resistance remains $140, above which the price could test $148. On the downside, the $127 level is an initial support. If there are more losses, the price is likely to break the $125 level.
