Ethereum Price Analysis

Recently, ETH price failed to clear the $159-160 resistancezone against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair started a downside correction and traded below the $155 and $150 support levels. There was even a close below the $155 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price also declined below the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent leg from the $147 low to $160 high.

More importantly, yesterday’s highlighted key bullish trend line was breached with support at $150 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair tested the $147 swing low and it is currently trading below the 100 hourly SMA. On the downside, the next support is near the $144 level. It is the 1.236 Fib extension level of the recent leg from the $147 low to $160 high. If there are more losses, the price may trade towards the $139-140 support zone. Besides, the 1.618 Fib extension level of the recent leg is also near the $139 level. On the upside, the broken support near the $150-152 zone and the 100 hourly SMA could act as a resistance.
