Ethereum Price Analysis
This past week, ETH price followed a solid bullish path above the $120 pivot area against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair broke the $142 resistance area and settled above the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). Later, buyers gained bullish momentum and broke the $150 and $154 resistance levels. The price even broke the $160 level and traded towards the $162 level.
A high was formed at $161.57 and later the price started a downside correction. It declined below the $154 support to move into a short term bearish zone. Sellers pushed the price below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $128 low to $162 swing high. However, there are many supports on the downside near the $150 and $142 levels. Moreover, there is a crucial bullish trend line formed with support at $148 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD. Below the trend line, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $128 low to $162 swing high is at $145. Therefore, downsides near the $150 and $145 levels are likely to find a strong buying interest.
The above chart indicates that ETH price remains in a decent uptrend above the $142 support. On the upside, a break above the $162 swing high may open the doors for $170 and $180.
