Ethereum Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a downside correction in ETH price from the $149 and $150 resistances against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair declined below the $144 support level, but the $138 and $140 levels acted as a solid buy zone. As a result, the pair bounced back and traded above the $144 and $146 levels. However, sellers remained in control near the $148 and $149 resistance levels. There was no successful break above the $148 and $150 barriers. The last swing high was formed just below $149 and the price is currently correcting lower.

It already tested the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $140 swing low to $149 swing high. On the downside, there are many supports near the $143 and $144 levels. There is also a new connecting bullish trend line forming with support at $143 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Besides, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $140 swing low to $149 swing high is also near the $143 level. Therefore, the $143 support is likely to act as a strong support.

Below $143, the next major support is near the $140 area, followed by $138. The 100 hourly simple moving average is also close to the $138 level to act as a support. As long as the price is trading above the $138 swing low, it remains supported for more gains. However, buyers need to take out the $148 and $149 resistance levels for further gains.
