Ethereum Price Analysis

Yesterday, we discussed that ETH price could revisit the $150 and $155 levels against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair did move higher, broke the $144 resistance and climbed towards the $150 and $155 resistance levels. A new weekly high was formed at $156 and later the price started a downside correction. It declined below the $155 and $152 levels, but it is currently well above the 100 hourly simple moving average.

There was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $139 low to $156 high. However, there are many supports near the $150 and $144 levels. Moreover, there is a short term bullish flag pattern formed with support at $150 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Below the channel support, the next buy zone is near the $148 level. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $139 low to $156 high. Therefore, if there is a downside correction, the price may find support near $150 or $148.
