Ethereum Price Analysis

In the past few days, we saw range moves in ETH price below the $124 and $125 resistances against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair failed to break the $125 resistance and it recently declined below the $121 and $119 support levels. The decline was such that there was a spike below the $117 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. More importantly, this week’s followed major bullish trend line was breached with support at $121 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair traded close to the $115 support and later bounced back sharply above $117.

Buyers were able to take the price above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $125 high to $115 low. However, the previous support levels near $121 and $122 are acting as hurdles for buyers. Besides, there is a new connecting bearish trend line in place with resistance at $121 on the same chart. The price also struggled to clear the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $125 high to $115 low. At the moment, it seems like the price might jump above the $121 level, but upsides are likely to remain capped. If buyers struggle to push the price above the $122-123 zone, there could be a fresh decline.

Looking at the chart, ETH price is somewhat struggling below the $122-123 resistance zone. Having said that, the price needs to clear the last swing high at $125 to continue higher in the near term.
