Ethereum Price Analysis

Yesterday, ETH price traded close to the $157 level against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded as high as $156.97 and later started a downside correction. It declined below the $154 and $150 support levels. There was also a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent leg from the $130 low to $157 high. However, the price found a strong support near the $144 level.

Moreover, there is a major bullish trend line formed with support at $145 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair also tested the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent leg from the $130 low to $157 high. It is currently consolidating above the $144 level and the trend line. The price action is positive and it seems like the price may soon break the $150 and $154 levels. A break above the $154-155 zone could clear the path for more gains. On the downside, the trend line support, $144, and the 100 hourly simple moving average hold the key. As long as the price is above $144 and $140, it could bounce back in the near term.
