Ethereum Price Analysis

In the past few sessions, there was a solid upward move from the $120 swing low in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair gained strength and broke many important resistances such as $125 and $130. There was a proper close above the $130 resistance level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Recently, there was a tiny bearish reaction from the $130 resistance, but the $124 level acted as a solid support. The price rallied and broke the $130 and $132 resistances. A new monthly high was formed near $135, with bullish moves.

After testing the $135 resistance, there was a minor downside correction. ETH dipped below the $133 level, but the $132 level acted as a support. Moreover, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $123 low to $135 high acted as a support. On the downside, there seems be a lot of supports forming near the $130 and $129 levels. Besides, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $123 low to $135 high is also near the $129 level.

More importantly, there is a key bullish trend line in place with support at $128 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Therefore, if the pair corrects lower in the short term, there could be a strong buying interest near the $129 and $130 levels.
