Ethereum Price Analysis

This past week, ETH price formed a decent support base near the $112 and $114 levels against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair started a recovery and moved above the $116 and $117 resistance levels. There was also a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $126 high to $111 swing low. However, the recovery was capped near the $119 and $120 resistance levels. As a result, there was a fresh decline and the price retested the $112 support level recently. At the moment, the price is trading in a range above $112 and it is preparing for the next move.

On the upside, there is a strong resistance formed near the $116 and $117 levels. There is also a crucial bearish trend line formed with resistance at $116 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD. Above the trend line, the next resistance is near the $119 level. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $126 high to $111 swing low. Finally, the 100 simple moving average (4-hours) is positioned near the $120 level to act as major hurdle. Therefore, to gain momentum, the price has to break the $116, $117 and $120 resistance levels.
