Ethereum Price Analysis

Recently, there was a dip towards the $128 level in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair found a strong buying interest near $128, resulting in a decent upside move. The price bounced back and traded above the $130 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Moreover, there was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $146 high to $128 low.

More importantly, there was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance at $134 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair spiked above the $138 level and tested the $140 resistance level. However, the price seems to be struggling to clear the $140-141 zone. It represents the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $146 high to $128 low. If there is a proper close above the $140 level, the price is likely to climb further higher towards the $144 and $148 resistance levels. The main hurdle for buyers is near the $150 level.
