Ethereum Price Analysis

After a decent recovery, ETH price faced a strong selling interest above the $125 level against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair formed a top near the $126 level and later started a sharp decline. It broke the $122 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The decline was crucial since the price broke the $120 and $118 support levels to move into a bearish zone. Sellers even pushed the price below the $115 level and a new weekly low was formed near the $113 level.

Later, the price started consolidating losses above $113 and corrected a few points higher. It moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $124 high to $113 swing low. However, the previous support near the $118 level is acting as a strong resistance. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $124 high to $113 swing low is positioned near $118. More importantly, there is a major bearish trend line formed with resistance at $121 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.
