  • ETH price declined recently below $120 and tested the key $112 support area against the US Dollar.
  • Yesterday’s highlighted important bearish trend line is intact with resistance at $118 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair is currently consolidating below the $118 and $120 resistance, with a few positive moves.

Ethereum price is placed in a bearish zone against the US Dollar and bitcoin. ETH/USD must break the $118 and $120 resistances to start a short term upside correction.

Ethereum Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a nasty decline in ETH price from the $125 swing high against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair broke the $122, $120, $118 and $115 support levels to move into a bearish zone. It tested the $112 support area where buyers emerged. Later, the price started consolidating losses and corrected a few points above the $114 level. It traded above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $123 swing high to $112 swing low.

However, there are many hurdles on the upside near the $118 level. The price made a couple of attempts to surpass the $117-118 zone, but buyers failed to gain momentum. Besides, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $123 swing high to $112 swing low is also near $118. More importantly, yesterday’s highlighted important bearish trend line is intact with resistance at $118 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Finally, the 100 hourly simple moving average is positioned near the $120 level. Therefore, both $118 and $120 levels are crucial barriers for buyers in the short term.

Looking at the chart, ETH price may continue to trade in a range above $112 before the next move. If buyers push the price above the $118 and $120 resistance, there could be a recovery towards $125. If not, the price could retest the $112 or $110 level.
