Ethereum Price Analysis
This past week, ETH price declined below the $130 and $120 support levels against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded as low as $112.80 and later formed a solid support. It seems like the $112 area and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours) provided support. Later, the price started a strong upside move and traded above the $125 and $134 resistance levels.
There was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $152 swing high to $112 swing low. Moreover, there was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance at $122 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD. The pair also cleared the $138 resistance, but it struggled to clear the $142 resistance. Besides, the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $152 swing high to $112 swing low also acted as a resistance. The price is currently trading in a range near the $130 level and it may make the next move soon.
The above chart indicates that ETH price could dip a few points towards the $128 or $122 level before the next upside move. A break above the $142 and $144 resistance levels may clear the path for more gains. The next resistance is at $152 followed by $155.
