Ethereum Price Analysis

Yesterday, we discussed the chances of ETH price holding the 100 hourly simple moving average against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair did correct lower and tested the $120-121 support area. However, buyers were able to prevent losses below $121 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. A low was formed at $121.71 and later the price started trading in a range.

The price crawled back above the $130 level, with a positive angle. There was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $159 high to $121 low. Moreover, there was a break above a short term bearish trend line with resistance at $130 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. It has opened the doors for more gains and the price may now trade towards $138 or $140. Besides, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $159 high to $121 low is near the $140 level. Therefore, if the price continues to move up, it could face resistance near the $140 or $142 levels.
